I recently received an email — purportedly from the IRS — claiming I have a refund coming and asking me to follow a link to file my return and process the refund.  Here’s a copy of it.  It is shamelessly not from the IRS: the return email address has nothing to do with our government, and there’s not even an IRS logo in the email.

This is a good reminder to make sure that you are dealing with the actual government and not a scam artist when you receive communications from the IRS. Here’s the Federal Trade Commission on some of these IRS phishing scams.

Stay alert out there, people.
