ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh is warning residents about a new scam during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Frosh warned residents not to respond to texts, social media posts or emails that claim you have to fill out a Census form to receive a stimulus check.

Frosh said this is just another way fraudsters are trying to steal your personal information.


This announcement comes just after a $2 trillion stimulus bill passed in the Senate that includes help for American families who are hurting financially due to the economic impact of the coronavirus.
