Suspicious e-Mails and Identity Theft


The Internal Revenue Service has issued several recent consumer warnings on the fraudulent use of the IRS name or logo by scamsters trying to gain access to consumers’ financial information in order to steal their identity and assets. When identity theft takes place over the Internet, it is called phishing.
Identity theft can be committed through e-mail (phishing) or other means, such as regular mail, fax or telephone, or even by going through someone's trash.
Double Check the URL (the above address that is http://..) must not be redirected to other site while informing to click it. Google the word "IRS SCAM", if match, please do not proceed and report it immediately.
