Mayor Armstead is warning residents of a dangerous and effective new scam telling New Jersey residents that they need to provide their bank account information via phone, email, or social media message in order to “receive” their $1,200 federal stimulus check. Any person who calls, emails, or messages you and tells you that you need to give them your bank account information in order to receive your stimulus check or to receive it more quickly is lying. You do not need to provide any information to any person calling or emailing in order to receive these funds.
