Phishing Is No Longer a Recreational Activity

Several years ago, we warned our clients to beware of emails claiming to be from the IRS, because the IRS does NOT communicate with taxpayers via email.  Emails with the IRS logo do not make them legitimate.

The scams are still going on.  If you get an email that appears to be from the IRS and it has a link for you to click, chances are that it contains a virus or worse … they want your bank account information. The real IRS wants to know if you suspect a fraudulent communication, so forward suspicious emails to Phishing@IRS.Gov
