Eddie shared an update on his possible scam alert!
He received a letter in the mail that said the government owed him $3,000 and all he had to do was go to the website and claim it. He was told to make sure the website had .gov because if it did then it would be official. But he thought they told him .org was the correct one, so he went to it and claimed it and gave them all his info.
Anyone can buy a .org website so it may not be legitimate. But you can’t buy ".gov." After double checking, Eddie saw it was actually a .gov website and received a notice that they are processing his information, and he will get his check in the next 30 days. He will let us know when the money comes in or if it turned out to be a scam.
