Crystal, I received the email in the photo which is obviously a scam, and I already knew not to open any attached links.
Anyway, as I wanted to report this to the IRS, I looked at their website:
Basically, the IRS requests these type of emails be forwarded to [email protected]. As indicated, do NOT open any of the links in these emails. Once you forward them to the IRS, delete them and also from your trash bin.Take care,Dad
PS Also, you might let your readers know that in many of these types of scam emails, the wording, grammar, punctuation, etc. appear peculiar which should definitely be another red flag.
Thanks, Dad! This is a great time to remind everyone to be careful with their data. Don’t fall for any IRS email or phone scams and keep in mind that you can always contact an organization yourself through searchable contact info instead of trusting where an email or call is really coming from…harder to scam you if you call the organization directly.
