Scamsters are targeting easy prey with stimulus checks. One really needs to be careful when one receives a call or a mail saying that one has qualified for the stimulus checks and all one needs to do to receive it is to click on the link sent or send one’s security details and bank account number. One should remember IRS will never ask for any money to be wired. They will just call or mail a letter to say USD 1400 is owed to you.
