According to PolitiFact, a message being shared on Facebook claiming you can sign up for $2,000 every month from the federal government is a hoax. Also, FEMA is not giving essential workers $1,000.
So if you see this on your social media channels, it’s fake.
“You must apply to get your second stimulus check! I’ve already filed for mine and will be receiving $2,000 a month for the rest of the year!!!” the post says. “Everybody’s will be different so click the link & sign up.”
The post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed.
