BEWARE OF SCAMS RELATED TO STIMULUS CHECKS !!!
Elderly and others have received fake emails from the IRS, asking for banking information related to stimulus checks.
The IRS never sends emails. Any messages people might receive like this are scams.
In fact, the IRS never even calls --- everything is by snail mail. Anything by telephone or email is a scam !!!
