I recently received an email solicitation — purporting to be from the IRS — claiming I was eligible for a refund and asking me to click a link to process my return for 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 no IRS logo.

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 is a link to the IRS website talking about phishing and other scams.

Stay alert out there, people.
