The Quincy Police Department received information about a scam regarding the stimulus checks. People have been contacted by individuals asking for social security numbers to process the distribution of the checks. The federal government will not call and ask for your social security number to process the payment of the funds. Please do not give any personal information over the phone. Consumers are not going to need to sign up for the stimulus checks. No action will be required for the vast majority of Americans.
If you believe you have been a victim of this scam, please contact the Quincy Police Department at 617.479.1212 and the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov
