Scammers are stealing stimulus checks directly from mailboxes. The scammers then “wash” the checks.

“We have business or gangs of enterprise people who “wash” the check,’’ said Special Agent Stefanie Hipkins who is a Supervisory Agent with the IRS Criminal Investigation Division in Raleigh.

According to Hipkins, the thieves will then change who the check is made out to and they might change the amount of the check.

“They’re very good at what they do,” she said. “I’ve seen some of them.”
