- Fraudulent Communications Using the FDIC Name
The FDIC is reminding consumers and businesses to be on guard against letters, e-mails and faxes from con artists who misuse the agency’s name and logo to trick recipients into sending money or divulging personal information. Among the recent examples are letters falsely claiming to offer FDIC protection against investment losses in exchange for an up-front payment, and e-mails falsely saying that a consumer’s bank has failed and asking the person to download a form (which could result in identity theft).
“The scammers are doing anything to make their mailings look authentic, even including fake signatures of FDIC officials,” said Matthew Alessandrino, the FDIC’s Assistant Inspector General for Investigations.
- New Option for Direct Deposit of Tax Refunds: Buying a Savings Bond
Since 2007, taxpayers wanting to receive their federal income tax refund by direct deposit have had the option to split their refund among up to three different accounts and three different U.S. financial institutions. But starting in early 2010, the Internal Revenue Service will give taxpayers an additional savings option-the ability to use their refunds to purchase a U.S. Savings Bond on their tax return, without having to open an account at the U.S. Treasury Department or take other action. The change will give taxpayers another easy way to save their tax refunds and benefit from the speed and safety of direct deposit.
