Fake IRS Emails

Phony IRS emails continue to be a problem, showing up in inboxes across Central Virginia. The note claims to be an update on a tax refund.  It's a trick -- don't reply, click any links or open any attachments. If you respond criminals could get their hands on your personal information. Remember, the IRS never sends emails like this.

If you get this one or something similar, report it to the agency. The email is phishing@irs.gov
