Stimulus Payments Easy to Intercept
If you are expecting a check from the US government you may be in for a surprise if you are one of the millions that are not required to file a tax return. For these people, the IRS has set up a site where they can give bank account information to receive their direct deposit. However, the amount and type and amount of information that is required to collect those stimulus checks is minimal and it is easily faked by enterprising criminals. You may not even be able to get your stimulus when you go file because some one claimed it in your name.
