With a third round of federal COVID-19 stimulus funds heading to residents, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is reminding Kansans to exercise caution if they are approached regarding the funds. Schmidt said Kansans should be wary of scammers offering to assist with receiving the payments. The Internal Revenue Service will not ask you to pay anything up front to get this money. There are no fees or charges associated with receiving the payment. No one from the federal government will call, email or text message you and ask for your Social Security number, bank account information or credit card number. Anyone who does this is a scammer. Anyone calling and telling you they can get the check to you today is a scammer.
