IRS email scam

Hey, scammers, do you really want the IRS after you? Because they never give up. They will find you, even if you’re dead. I can’t help but laugh at your idiocy. 🙂

The IRS doesn’t initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information…

What to do if you receive a suspicious IRS-related communication

  1. Don’t reply.
  2. Don’t open any attachments. They can contain malicious code that may infect your computer or mobile phone.
  3. Don’t click on any links. Visit our identity protection page if you clicked on links in a suspicious email or website and entered confidential information.
  4. Forward the email as-is to us at phishing@irs.gov. Don’t forward scanned images because this removes valuable information.
  5. Delete the original email.
