WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - As the second round of stimulus payments continue to go out, the Better Business Bureau warns of scam attempts. The BBB already is getting reports about scammers contacting people and telling them they need to provide personal information to get the money. Some scammers also say there are processing fees for collecting the $600 check. Neither is true.

Experts say not to respond to any text messages, emails, or robocalls concerning your stimulus check. On its website, the BBB offers a list of 10 steps you can take to avoid falling for scams. If someone attempts to steal your money or personal information through a scam, you can report it on the BBB Scam Tracker.
