Taxpayer beware: IRS poser seeking personal info

JACKSON

The Attorney General’s Office is warning residents to beware of an e-mail scam in which the sender pretends to be with the Internal Revenue Service. The e-mails take various forms, but seek personal or financial information from the recipient.

The IRS does not send e-mails about refunds or to request or verify financial information. Anyone can report a suspicious e-mail by forwarding the e-mail to phishing@irs.gov. If you are unsure if the e-mail is from the IRS, call 1-800-366-4484 for verification.
