A post has recently gone viral on Facebook which is claiming that people who click the link will get fiver hundred and forty dollars a month in Stimulus Check.
This Facebook ad copies the interface of IRS website and then claims that the government will be offering health credits to help their taxpayers pay for their daily life expenses. The website also says that the time to avail this amount of stimulus check is limited to create urgency in the minds of the viewers.
While the Rescue which is the reference of the ad includes some subsidies to reduce the costs of healthcare for the thirteen million people that qualifies for such benefits, this ad is all scams. However, people who are not familiar with the different parts of the law can and are easily getting fooled by this viral Facebook ad.
Stimulus Check Payment New Update:
However, if you want to see if the offer is good, they can easily do so by checking different things like the URL. If the ad claims to be a government profile and the URL does not end with the “.gov” link, then it probably is not reliable. Also, check if the ad is written properly or not because if the ad is not properly written, it can be illegitimate.
The best tactic to avoid getting scammed by such ads on social media is either you look for these signs or simply avoid clicking on such links. If you see a ad that looks like something important from the government, you should directly go to the website and from their you will know all about the important notifications and more. Last Tuesday IRS warned the taxpayers for smishing and phishing scams as the 2022 tax year wraps up.
