IRS Warns of New Email Scam

November 27, 2018

The IRS sent out a warning about a new email scam that may contain malicious malware. The fraudulent emails, which appear to be sent from “IRS Online,” contain an attachment labeled “Tax Account Transcript,” or something similar. The IRS, however, does not send unsolicited emails to the public, nor emails containing sensitive information such as that which is included in a tax return. The IRS asks the public not to open the email, and if using a personal computer to delete it or forward it to phishing@irs.gov. If one is using an employer’s computer, the IRS asks that the employee notify his or her company of the email. For more information please visit the IRS website.
