email scam

Just a little public service announcement. I got an email from the "Internal Revenue Service" today asking me to click on a link and give them my information, including social security number and bank account number.

Of course, I knew this had to be a scam, just because these are never legit, but just for funsies I did some online research. Here's the link I found: Hoax Slayer IRS email scam

So I know most people reading this will not respond to the email, but I thought it was important to post something about it. Don't respond to it!

    Forward the email to your ISP so they can trace it and press charges. Otherwise, they just keep doing it.
