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.
