As the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic continues, scammers are using different ways to gather your information and use it for ransom.
Some websites are offering information on COVID-19 relief programs in exchange for signing up through them as a subscription or requesting a fee. With this, the websites hold your basic information ransom and could possibly cause you problems in the near future.
WFY wants to make sure there aren’t any more problems for our clients who are already going through an ambiguous period of time. Fraud will only increase as the coronavirus pandemic goes on. Therefore, we advise you to only work with sources you know are safe and whom you’ve worked with before. On our WFY website, we have provided a COVID-19 relief page with safe links that can help you with any questions on resource programs at https://www.cpa-wfy.com/covid-19-resources/
If you have any questions or concerns on a COVID-19 relief program, please contact your WFY tax advisor.
