While it’s not a bad idea to be suspicious when an unexpected credit or debit card shows up in the mail, it appears one that may be legit is being mistaken for a scam. If you did not get your Economic Impact Payment via direct deposit, you should have gotten or will be getting a debit card in a plain white envelope with the return address of “Money Network Cardholder Services.”
Better Business Bureau Investigator Don O’Brien says this was not a well-known fact.
He warns that scammers may try to text, call, or email you, trying to get you to give up your card number or your personal information. If you have not received your Economic Impact Payment, you can track your funds using the Get My Payment tracking tool at https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment.
