Small Business Administration Issues Scam Alert
The SBA is warning small business owners to ignore letters they may receive that falsely claim to be from the SBA.
These letters appear to be on SBA letterhead and ask for the small business owner's bank account information to qualify them for federal tax rebates under the Economic Stimulus Act. These letters are fraudulent and were not issued by the SBA.
If you receive such a letter, you are urged to contact the Office of Inspector General fraud line at 800-767-0385 or OIGHotline@sba.gov.
