Email Tax Scams

Posted by taxguru on September 1, 2007

Snopes.com has these notices about recent fake IRS emails floating around trying to obtain personal info from unsuspecting folks, aka phishing.  I haven’t received any of these myself because I am a strict user of MailWasher to purge my email accounts of spam and scams before bring anything into my main Eudora email; but I have received some emails from readers who did receive some of these fake IRS emails. 

E-mail from the IRS offers $80 to those who complete “member satisfaction surveys.


E-mailed IRS notice claims the recipient is eligible for a tax refund.


IRS has also put out another news release on these kinds of scams.
