Very Clever IRS Spam Email to Watch Out For

Undoubtedly you have received a spam email or two lately if you have been near your computer.

Yesterday I was copied on this email and mention it because it was one of the best I have seen in a while.

The title window read the following


In the body of the email there is a very official looking note saying you are due a small refund after a calculation and even a link to a IRS looking website. Whatever you do, DO NOT OPEN OR RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL.

This is a very clever spam email in order to gain your information. The IRS will not contact you via email for your information, which I discovered in researching this email.

I mention this for your safety, as we see many of these types of spam and virus emails, but this one was a very clever in it’s presentation.
