There is a Relief Check Scam that has hit property owners in the Town of Cicero,and may well hit other towns and villages.  Elderly home owners are receiving a telephone call that comes up on the caller id as the Town of Cicero.  They are asked to provide a credit card/debit card number so their relief rebate can be put directly into their bank account. Note that the towns or villages will never ask for your credit information; also, the rebate checks come from the state, not from local municipalities.
