FAKE email from "IRS" -- did you get one too?
« on: February 21, 2007, 06:51:10 PM »

Today one of my other email accounts received the following phishing email:

I can't believe anyone would fall for this but probably many do.  I didn't visit the linked site but I'm sure they must be collecting SS#s and personal info.  I don't even want them to have my IP...

Has anyone else received one of these?

You can tell it's fake because the IRS would never, ever say "regards" in any official capacity.

It would be more like...

"Now Give Us Your Fucking Lunch Money, You Tax Evading Whore.

The Internal Revenue Service."

aupointillimite, I don't think they are that nice even. I've had my dealing with them, but I came out ahead and they paid me interest.

I owe them money.  To the tune of $1,000. 

Blaaaaaaaaaah.

aupointillimite, Tell them you will pay, when they've collected the tax off all the illegal immigrants. ;)

There were a lot of things that I wanted to tell them.  But what came out of my mouth was, "OK.  I'll give you your dirty money."
