I’m sure many of you, like me, are awaiting or were awaiting your economic impact check. I was really pleased when mine came in the mail a couple of days ago.
Went out grocery shopping yesterday (I go once every other week, gloved, masked, etc.) and was going to deposit my check, but had forgotten to bring it with me…LUCKILY! Today I got an AARP newsletter which talked about fake checks going out and, sure enough, mine is fake! It fails all four tests that are set up to prevent fake checks.
So glad I didn’t deposit it, and will be contacting my local field office of the Secret Service on Monday to let them know I got one of the fakes.
Which still leaves me not knowing when my real check will arrive…luckily, I have enough to survive another month without it.
