Now we have an e mail that going around seeminly from the IRS. In this area,at least, people are getting an e mail from the IRS-looks really authentic,and when you click on it,look more authentic. It states that you are owed a refund of sorts for x amount,you click on the form to get it,and surprise! This form wants you ss number,any credit card info,etc.This one lady here did that and then later only wondered how the IRS got her e mail and why they didn't already know her ss number.Course,it's all a scam to get your personal id info. If you get this,DELETE-the IRS won't e mail you,but send you a letter. Just passing along what the crooks are up to now!...Karen :D




Thanks Karen for the heads up! I've also been getting things in my e-mail such as "unpaid rent" messages from a sender called "landlord" (like I'd really fall for that one! come on!) and e-mails about "unsettled debt" from various shady sender whom I've never heard of, they turn out to be some online settlement company's advertisement.

Bottom line, monetary info should never switch hands via e-mail! Don't ever fall for it!

I mark all the unrecognized mails as spam and delete them forever. But still, it keeps coming. There are some emails that say - satisfy your partner, some mails from Third fifth bank and don't know what else. I never go through them. They are just marked as spam. And I am not bothered to read any.

They all go into my bulk folder and are immediately deleted. Oh my goodness! These spammers have never heard of a little thing called "market research" because apparently they all think I'm a Christian lesbian golfer in need of a laptop, cell phone, plastic surgery, pimped up car, debt management, credit card, payday loan, work at home scam job ,and what have you.

:lol: The spammers want to prey on someone thinking that he/she is having all the deficits. Their automated systems don't have common sense.

Did you notice how they shuffle the alphabets similar to your/mine. A few alphabetical tricks get them into our valid email address. And if it????????s clicked, gosh! their can be a chance of hacking and getting personal information. I must say, their subject line is the catch. It has endless varieties. :)

Ari-you are too funny! Stan-I looked at your blog and about the e-mail. I don't know,but if it were that easy to get a degree, I don't think any one would have to go to college,just my opinion. I do know,a guy that worked for our agency,did that,maybe not that particuliar one,but one like it. Well,when our state auditors came,they were not impressed,said none of that education counted toward his certification hours,and he would have to start over on them. They refused to recognize his hours or degree.My boss tried to talk me into doing that too,about the same time he did,and I said,naw-sounds too good to be true!So I went to classes and got my hours the old fashioned way-funny thing,I was the one who got laid off,not them-oh well,such is life :P ...Karen :D
