Stay safe: Avoid COVID-19 related scams
The recently implemented Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act details how economic impact payments will be determined and distributed to individuals. It’s important that you be aware fraudsters are ramping up their efforts to scam people out of their payment or personal information.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is advising taxpayers to be wary of phone calls, emails, text messages, and social media posts about payments, especially those that ask for money or sensitive information to be provided in order to receive funds.
Our dedication to information security remains strong. We would never call or email you to secure your social security number, account number or password(s). Never provide your personal information—including social security number, account numbers or passwords—to someone who's contacted you by phone or email. If you suspect you've been the victim of fraud, contact us immediately at (216) 529-2700 or email@example.com.
