PEOPLE online are upset after learning that social media posts going around claiming that everyone will get a $2,500 stimulus check on July 31 are just fake news.
The rumor is making the rounds on social media, and one post specifically claims, “It passed 10 minutes ago! Everyone gets another stimulus check for $2500 on July 30, 2021. They did it!” according to USA Today.
But the posts are a hoax, and one provides a link that is supposed to have instructions on how to get the stimulus check directly deposited, only to send people to an image of an ape giving the middle finger.
“It’s really f***ed up of people to play games like this with low income people,” one person commented on a post on Facebook claiming the checks are going out at the end of the month. “They see posts like this one, believe it, and some even make poor financial choices based on the expectation that they’ll be getting money soon. You should be ashamed of yourself.”
It is unlikely a new stimulus check will be sent in late July or August, but the pressure is mounting.
