The Redding Police Department is alerting residents to a new scam. According to police, scammers are calling asking for bank account numbers to process your relief money coming soon.
"The government will not call you for that information. The money will be automatic depending on how you file your taxes. Direct deposit is automatic. Mailing your taxes results in a mailed check when the time comes," police say.
Redding Police advises you to HANG UP if that call comes in!
"Be safe and hang in there. We are out there!" police say.
