The IRS Issues a Consumer Alert: New Email Scam



Taxpayers should be on the lookout for a new, email-based phishing

scam now circulating that targets Department of Defense military

members, retirees, and civilian employees. The email appears to come

from Defense Finance and Accounting Services and displays a .mil email

address. The email states that those receiving disability compensation

from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) may be able to obtain

additional funds from the IRS. Email recipients are then asked to send

various VA and IRS documents containing their personal and financial

information, such as copies of VA award letters or their income tax

returns, to an address in Florida. The information on these documents is

then used by the scammers to commit identity theft.



The IRS offers resources for business owners and taxpayers who

believe they have received an email scam, or have experienced identity

theft. Click here to view the resource page.

Here is a current on for 2016...
You get a call and it says the IRS is suing you and papers have been filed in court.
Then it tells you to call a number right away.
IT IS ALL A SCAM.
