It seems that many of you might have received an email from IRS giving notice of unreported/underreported income.
BEWARE! It is a phishing SCAM! Don’t respond to it or better don’t even open it. Just delete it.
The fake email notice from the IRS about unreported income pretends to be a legitimate IRS Notice called a CP2000.
However, this one says its from firstname.lastname@example.org, but that’s just a fake address used by the phishing scammers who want you to click the link so they can steal your financial information.
The fake IRS Notice of Unreported/Underreported income looks like this:
Taxpayer ID: gortidd-00000174073547US
Tax Type: INCOME TAX
Issue: Unreported/Underreported Income (Fraud Application)
Please review your tax statement on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website (click on the link below):
review tax statement for taxpayer id: gortidd-00000174073547US
Internal Revenue Service
Ignore the notice and DO NOT click the link as its actually just a spam email sent out to millions of people.
Hopefully by now the phishing site must have been brought down. I didn’t post the URL here for reasons you know.
