Checks from the government

Please visit Coronavirus stimulus payment scams: What you need to know for the most recent information.

As the Coronavirus takes a growing toll on people’s pocketbooks, there are reports that the government will soon be sending money by check or direct deposit to each of us. The details are still being worked out, but there are a few really important things to know, no matter what this looks like.

1. The government will not ask you to pay anything up front to get this money. No fees. No charges. No nothing.

2. The government will not call to ask for your Social Security number, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer.

3. These reports of checks aren’t yet a reality. Anyone who tells you they can get you the money now is a scammer.

Look, normally we’d wait to know what the payment plan looks like before we put out a message like this. But these aren’t normal times. And we predict that the scammers are gearing up to take advantage of this.

So, remember: no matter what this payment winds up being, only scammers will ask you to pay to get it. If you spot one of these scams, please tell the Federal Trade Commission: We’re doing our best to stop these scammers in their tracks, and your report will help.

Yes, They will deposit to same route that is or was used for recieving social security deposits or for those who filed taxes in either 2018 or 2019 and had refunds electronically transferred to an account, they will send to that account if it is still an active or open account. if there is no direct deposit or no established direct deposit account for receiving government benefits or tax return refund they will mail it. My question is if it's been two years since you file a return is there a way of giving them an update account updated account where they can send the money electronically

I just found the info on this direct ex. Card. It's a federal treasury card they are the office who's got into on you so the treasury dept recommends the direct ex card and then it's now all info of treasury is top of the card and they contracted to a place to do the job that the federally treasury has picked as the card you use and they recommend it unless u want direct dep.thru personal bank u choose. Yes from what I just looked and crossed red. They will put.on direct ex if that's the way u get check each month then that's how u will get it. I also read the answers on this iOS just them careful of info that can get scammers info and we wouldn't have a clue. So now you will get it on that card and info kept no answer from them because in so many words it's bad smart scammers that one word I bet give another clue to scam .
