(OPEN):
MANY ALABAMIANS FACE FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES, DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS.  AND, CRIMINALS ARE TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE.  THAT'S WHY JAMIE HARDING, OF "A-A-R-P ALABAMA", WARNS THEM TO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR SCAMS INVOLVING THE STIMULUS-CHECKS THAT MOST WILL BE RECEIVING...

(HARDING):
"
THE GOVERNMENT WILL NEVER ASK TO CONFIRM YOUR PERSONAL- OR BANKING-DETAILS, BY E-MAIL, PHONE, OR TEXT-MESSAGE.  NOR WILL IT DEMAND A 'PROCESSING FEE', TO ISSUE OR SPEED UP YOUR STIMULUS-PAYMENT.  IF YOU FILE TAX-RETURNS ELECTRONICALLY--AND HAVE PROVIDED THE 'I-R-S' WITH YOUR BANK-INFORMATION--YOU ALREADY WILL LIKELY GET YOUR PAYMENT MORE QUICKLY, THROUGH 'DIRECT DEPOSIT'.  ALSO, DON'T FALL FOR SCAMMERS WHO OFFER LOANS THAT ARE BASED ON YOUR EXPECTED CHECK--BUT WITH THE CATCH OF A LARGE, UPFRONT 'FEE'.  DON'T CLICK ON LINKS IN E-MAIL OR TEXT-MESSAGES THAT PRESUMABLY RELATE TO THE STIMULUS.  AND, DON'T PROVIDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THE SENDER."
