This is something you want to be aware of!

IRS is warning of new text scams that are aimed at getting people to accept fake checks. People are getting text messages warning Americans about a text-message scam that is promising them fake stimulus checks.

The text reads "You have received a direct deposit of $1,200 from COVID-19 TREAS FUND" and offering a link to "accept this payment". If you click the link, it actually takes you to a fake IRS site that asks for your personal and bank account information.
