Remain Vigilant And Alert To New Phishing Scams

01-Feb-2016 A reminder to be on the lookout for continuing attempts to compromise various types of personal data.

There are a few new phishing scams to obtain e-services information, and one is in the form of an email. These scams are asking e-services users to update their e-services information. E-services will never ask you to do this. If you receive an email or requests like this, do not click on the links or take any other action.

It is important to keep in mind the IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media channels. Never click on strange emails or links seeking updated information.
