IRS Warns of Phishing Scam

I don't have to worry about this at all. Any email I get from the IRS I just delete and pretend I never got it.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is warning US citizens of a new phishing scheme that poses as official IRS communications in the hopes that victims access a link, download a file, and hopefully get infected with ransomware.

The email, pictured above, tries to convince users they need to download a questionnaire, print it, fill it with their personal details, scan it, and then send it to an IRS email address.

To look as realistic as possible, the phishing email also bears the logos of the IRS and the FBI.

In reality, this scam's only purpose is to convince users to download a file that is laced with a yet unidentified form of ransomware that infects users' PCs and encrypts their files.
