Please be aware of a brand new scam involving people impersonating the Small Business Association. The imposters claim to be conducting “site visits” on behalf of the SBA in connection with PPP and EIDL loans taken by most small business owners since March.
When contacted, the SBA states that they do not conduct site visits as follows:
- SBA does not initiate contact on either 7a or Disaster loans or grants. If you are proactively contacted by someone claiming to be from the SBA, suspect fraud.
Additional scams involving the SBA and their loans have sprung up since the COVID-19 Relief Act. More info is available at: https://www.sba.gov/document/report-sba-programs-scams-fraud-alerts
