RICHMOND, Va. -- H&R Block customers reached out to CBS 6 over concerns that their COVID-19 stimulus money was deposited into accounts they did not recognize.

The tax filing company issued the following statement on the matter.

"The IRS Get My Payment website may display an account number you don’t recognize. If you took a Refund Transfer, it may be reflecting that account number. Check your 2019 return to confirm," the company tweeted. "But don’t worry – we have sent these payments on to the method you chose for Refund Transfer: direct deposit, check or Emerald Card. The money should be there by the end of the day."

Viewers have reached out to CBS 6 Tuesday morning after waking up and discovering the money has not yet been deposited.

This is a developing story.
