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. πŸ™‚

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 atΒ phishing@irs.gov. Don’t forward scanned images because this removes valuable information.
  5. Delete the original email.

One thought on “IRS email scam

  1. I got two ‘job’ offers from check fraud scammers who did the interview through google hangouts; the worst part is that the company ‘webpage’ had linked to a video game, ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’. Fake check in the mail for over 4K USD, even the contact’s names didn’t exist. If I didn’t know how to research companies online when looking for work, I probably would have fallen for it, too. Nice of you to pass the info along. 😊
