While many people are wondering when they are getting their stimulus check, some are finding out they have accidentally received other people's checks! Newsday reports checks being sent to taxpayers who paid via electronic payment have been direct deposited to the wrong accounts.
One person who found "an unexpected deposit of $1,800" learned it was a "deposit from the IRS bearing another taxpayer's Social Security number." The IRS admitted to Newsday, "We do know of instances of problems; we've heard of situations where stimulus checks have gone to the wrong people's bank accounts."
If you're wondering where your stimulus check is, they are being sent out in different waves, depending on your Social Security number and whether you filed electronically or by paper. Here are the details.
