The Treasury Inspector General for Taxpayer Administration (TIGTA) today issued a warning to taxpayers to beware of phone calls from individuals claiming to represent the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in an effort to defraud them.
WARNING! Spammers are now sending Fraudulent emails disguised as IRS notifications in an attempt to lure you into a phishing scheme. Do not respond or download attachments.
Speaking of TAX refund scams, just received this. Interesting things to note: 1. They list a relatively small refund amount which initially makes it believable, and 2. Believe-ability goes right out the window when you see a bogus web address and the email is riddled with spelling errors.
Like the economy isn’t in bad enough shape as it is—raising gas prices, food prices, you name it, it costs more. Now people are out to steal your IRS refunds.
