Fraud Alert Yesterday I encountered a phony e-mail from a scammer pretending to work for the IRS. Today I thought of another danger, IRS Mirror websites. To simply things, the ONLY official IRS website is http://www.irs.gov/ If it ain't .GOV, it's not official. So watch out!
If you encounter these false websites, please leave them in the comments field so everyone can be aware of these dangers.
To Review, Phising Scams
This is a huge problem right now. Identity thieves are using tax-themed fake e-mail to get financial information out of people. Once they have what they want, they'll use the information to empty out your bank account! So you have to be very careful about who you give your information to.
Word of Caution: If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. If someone is offering you an awesome way to save money quickly and easily, it's probably an IRS scam. It's a good idea to double check with a professional before you attempt anything that seems fishy.
