Congressman Walden wants folks to be aware that there exists a potential for scams and fraud with the upcoming stimulus payments. There have been reports of individuals posing as IRS agents asking for personal and financial information.

By following a few simple steps, you can protect yourself from fraud.
>The only way you can receive a rebate is by filing a tax return.
>There are only two manners in which the IRS will disburse the rebate: direct deposit or check in the mail.
>No one from the IRS will be calling you or e-mailing you for information.
>Beware of scams via the phone or Internet.
>Do not give out any personal or financial information over the phone or e-mail if someone inquires about your IRS check.

    One gimmick begets another & another, …….

    Fraud stimulus


    Wow! I saw the words fraud and scam and thought it was an article about Mayoral candidate Sam Adams.

    Whew! what a relief it was about the anti-stimulus package. The neo-cons and socialists agreed on this, it can’t be good for the country!
