Avoiding Advance Child Tax Credit Scams
Tips from Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
- Government agencies like the IRS or Social Security Administration will not call, text, DM, or email you.
- Do not give out any personal information, like social security numbers, bank account information, or credit/debit card numbers.
- Eligibility requirements and payment disbursements are monitored by the IRS and the IRS only.
- If someone reaches out to you concerning assistance with the advance Child Tax Credits, but they request or require payments by gift card, wire transfers, or cryptocurrency, it is a scam.
