IRS PHISHING SCAM REQUESTING CHECKING ACCOUNT INFO Internet

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I received an email today from the Internal Revenue Service, INC. I thought the INC was a nice touch and it did not have a .gov email address. It was an obvious phishing scam trying to get access to peoples checking accounts to steal their money.

the gist of the letter was to get my checking account number so they process my stimilus check to me faster. Yeah Right

Needless to say I did not click on the link - just reported as a phishing scam to my email account provider.

Watch out for this one
