    I just got an email saying the the IRS owed me 650 bucks with an attached html form. The for wanted not only my credit card number, but my pin, my CSS code (or whatever they call it), my checking account info, routing number.....EVERYTHING basicaly! I knew it was a scam so I called the IRS. The woman I spoke to said it is happening to many people.... its a scam and not only witll your identity get stolen if you enter the info, but appaerently the html page contains viruses. So beware!!!

    Ya my virus scanner has been catching these about once a day for the past week. I highly suggest using Avast AV as its email component has been flagging these.

    Most email is 'scam'. All those chain emails and other spam are scams.

    seriously. When I see these Dateline specials and people actually send money to these 419 scammers and actually give checks to people claiming to be from the IRS boggle me. After 10 years of serious warnings about the internet people still don't get it.. .not just old people, but young ones!! Boggling.
