Beware of E-Mails Claiming to be the IRS

Published on August 30th, 2017

Beware of e-mails that claim to be the IRS.  They even use the emblems of the IRS and the FBI.   

The e-mail tries to get you to click on a link to download a fake FBI questionnaire. Instead, the link downloads a certain type of malware, called ransomware, that will prevent you from accessing data stored on your device unless you pay money to the scammers.

If you have a tax issue, your first contact from the IRS will NOT be a threatening e-mail or phone call.
