The second round of economic impact checks (EIP) is a second opportunity for scammers to try and get your personal information or money. Read this Federal Trade Commission article on ways you may receive your  economic impact check.  Remember that the government will never call, text, email, or ask you to click on a link to activate your EIP card or get your money. If anyone does, it’s a scam. Don’t give anyone your personal or financial information, like your Social Security or bank account numbers. And never pay anyone to get your EIP funds. Report any scam immediately to the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov.

If you suspect Medicare fraud, contact Ohio SMP at 1-800-488-6070 option 7, use the “Report Fraud” button on this app, or click here.
