Suspicious e-Mails and Identity Theft

The Internal Revenue Service has issued several recent consumer warnings on the fradulent use of the IRS name or logo by fraudsters trying to gain access to personal information in order to steal their identity and assets.  Current phishing scams include phony e-mails which claim to come from the IRS and which lure the victims into the scam by telling them that they are due a tax refund.
