Phishing…

Over the past two months S has been getting multiple e-mails every day from people claiming to be the IRS.  They want to give her information about her possible refund so they provide a link to their website so that she can enter her information for the refund.  If you move your cursor over the link you can easily see that it doesn’t go to the official irs.govwebsite. The actual IRS requests that anyone receiving these e-mails should forward them to an IRS Phishing investigative team.  Good to know.  The e-mail address for that is phishing@irs.gov.

Anyway, here is a news item about the IRS Phishsers from Government Computer News.
