If you get a letter about a $300 payment, don’t throw it away, it isn’t a scam

Make sure if you’re a resident in Santa Ana, California, you’re checking your mail for a letter that notifies you of a payment coming.

Letters were sent to residents eligible for the $300 payments going out to low income families in the city.

Many residents are having their payments delivered right to their door, while others are being sent a notification through the mail.

20,000 cards are being given out by hand delivery or by being picked up by residents receiving letters.
