Phone calls or emails from impostors posing as federal employees are becoming more common every day. Don’t fall for scammers posing as government agents offering to help you get your economic impact payment faster or threatening to send the police to your home, arrest you for not paying your taxes, or take away your Social Security benefits .

If you suspect you are being the victim of a scam or fraud:

  1. Do not transfer money or pay with a prepaid debit card even if you are insisted. Just don’t do it.
  2. Never share personal information like your Social Security number, credit card number or others.
  3. Do not click on the links sent to you by email, instead open a new window and find the official website of the relevant agency .
  4. Report it .

For more information on these and other scams and to learn how to identify and report them, visit USAGov’s scams and fraud page in Spanish .
