IRS warns that scammers may time e-mails to trick filers
Most people are aware that the April 15 tax filing deadline has just passed. The Internal Revenue Service reminded taxpayers this week that scammers are aware, too, and may send official-looking e-mails to phish for private information.
"The IRS doesn't ever send e-mails about your taxes," said IRS spokesperson Carrie Resch. "If you filed your tax return recently, don't let a scam e-mail trick you into thinking the IRS is contacting you about it."
