DETROIT LAKES (KDLM) - Lakes Area residents are urged to be on the look out for a scam involving a second stimulus package.

Some of these scams suggest that you can get more money from the government - or get your stimulus check faster - if you share personal details and pay a small "processing fee."

A second stimulus package has not yet been finalized by Congress. That still hasn't prevented scammers from suggesting that there is a second check and trying to convince others that they need to "apply" for a second check or otherwise take steps to secure one.
