New Fake IRS E-mail
Snopes.com covers this latest phony email pretending to be from the IRS. Sherry actually received one of these the other day and wondered if it was real, until I explained that IRS does not send out emails to people. Their notices are sent via snail mail.
As I advised Sherry, anyone receiving these kinds of emails should forward them to the special IRS email address that was set up to handle this growing problem: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hopefully, IRS is using these emails to hunt down and nail the scammers who are sending these out.
