(WFLA/CNN/Meredith) -- When it comes to scams, experts say if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
One man in Florida says there's a scam going around you need to know about – fake coronavirus relief checks.
Thomas Andrews got one in the mail Thursday.
From the outside, the fake check looks official, including words like “time-sensitive,” “fast-tracked,” “open immediately” and “do not bend.” The check was for more than $3,000.
Luckily for Andrews, he knew it was suspicious. Stimulus checks to many Americans are a major component of the massive coronavirus relieve bill signed by President Donald Trump on Friday. But Andrews knew there's no way the checks could be in the mail yet (it may take weeks or even months), so he is giving people a heads up on Facebook. Plus, $3,000 is more money than any American will be getting.
“I wanted to post it as soon as I could because I know that some people, like my grandma, would have fallen for stuff like that,” Andrews said.
Along with the check is a letter telling people to come claim their stimulus incentives over the next week. Andrews’ check showed an address in Bushnell, Florida that was connected to a used car lot.
