Don’t Fall For The IRS E-Mail Scam

It’s bad enough that government revenuers legally relieve us of our hard-earned cash; it’s worse that high-tech scam artists try to seize upon the name of the IRS to rob the unsuspecting of even more money.

If you get an e-mail like this one that I received at my work account, don’t click on the link and by all means don’t respond to it by disclosing personal financial information:

After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have determined that you are eligible to receive a tax refund of $134.80. Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 6-9 days in order to process it.
