IRS Warns Taxpayers about A Text Phishing Scam Promising Stimulus Checks

The IRS is warning Americans about a new phishing scam via text message. People have been receiving texts that read "You have received a direct deposit of $1,200 from COVID-19 TREAS FUND. Further action is required to accept this payment into your account. Continue here to accept this payment." If you click on the link, it's taking you to a phishing address to steal your bank info and your money. If you happen to get one of these scam texts, screenshot it and send it to along with the number it was sent from, the date and time it was sent and the number that received the text.
