PRINCETON — Bureau County Sheriff’s Office Investigators are warning residents to be aware of scams involving stimulus checks.

Scams may be perpetrated by phone, mail, text or via U.S. mail. The sheriff urges the public to be protective of personal information. Do not give your personal or banking information. Many scams ask a person to verify their information by providing personal details such as social security number, phone number or address or banking information, including account or credit card numbers.

One current scam, investigators say, involves verifying a bank account number in order for funds to be direct deposited. Any credible agency that maintains your account already has your information.

Scammers also have targeted the Department of Unemployment and Department of Human Services debit card services for COVID-19-related assistance funds.
