A Tool to Track Stimulus Payment to Prevent Fraud
Ashley Moody, Florida Attorney General, issued an advisory to folks who have not already received an economic impact payment (stimulus payment) from the IRS, noting that the agency has released a new tool to help Floridians avoid stimulus-related fraud. Labeled “Get My Payment,” the tool is a web-based portal where eligible recipients can track their payment, and thus avoid scammers and fraudsters intent on hijacking funds from deserving Americans. The “Get My Payment” tool can be accessed here.
