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.
