IRS Warns About Yet Another Email Scam

Yesterday the IRS put out a consumer warning on yet another email scam. According to the IRS, the two-step e-mail scam falsely promises people they will receive $80 for participating in an online customer satisfaction survey. The email masks itself as an email from the IRS, with a link to an IRS "Member Satisfaction Survey." "We have seen many e-mail scams using the IRS name," IRS Deputy Commissioner for Operations Support Linda Stiff noted. "The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers through e-mail. Taxpayers should always use caution when they receive unsolicited e-mails."
