The Stimulus Package Appears To Be Stimulating Scammers…

from the they-wanted-job-creation... dept

This probably isn’t much of a surprise for most folks, but scammers have wasted no time at all in using news about the massive government stimulus plan to try to trick suckers into various scams. Many of these are scams trying to get people to sign up to pay a “fee” to find out how they can get their “stimulus check” even though the stimulus program isn’t sending out checks to individuals. Expect to see plenty more similar scams as well.
