    Those crafty spammers....

    Just wanted to give a heads up on a recent email I received...

    I got an email this morning from the IRS. Yes, I know that they are considerate and wanted to let me know that I overpaid my taxes and that they'd love to give me my money back.

    The email addresses 'looked' fine on a visual glance. Reply to was noreply (at) and the sending address was service (at)

    Too bad the 'click here' link was:
    Unfortunately, I don't think the IRS would ever be nice enough to return my money.

    Just wanted to give a heads up and the new ways people are working to steal your identies and money that you worked hard for.

    The text of the message was:
    After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have determined that you are eligible to receive a tax refund of $268.32. Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 6-9 days in order to process it.

    A refund can be delayed for a variety of reasons. For example submitting invalid records or applying after the deadline.

    One set of blood-sucking leeches spoofing another.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
