Suspicious Email from the IRS


Have you ever received a suspicious email from the Internal Revenue Service?  Most of us have.  You know it is phony by reviewing the spelling and appearance.  We received just such an email at our Law Firm.  I wondered how these scammers could be so bold as to use the actual IRS logo on their phishing expedition.

After careful review, I see they did not use the actual IRS logo.  The Logo on their email had one difference.  THE BEAK OF THE EAGLE WAS FILLED IN !!!!!!!!   Needless to say, I forwarded this to phishing@irs.gov.  I am sorry to say, my email was promptly rejected as junk mail.

New Medicare Cards are Coming Soon!

Starting April 1, 2018, the government will be issuing new Medicare cards that do not use your social security number as your ID number. Instead, they will have a computer-generated number assigned to you. It will no longer show your gender or require a signature. The idea is to make it harder for the scammers to steal your social security number along with your identity.
You will need to start using your new Medicare ID by December 31, 2019. Your Current card will be good until then.
