Are people really this stupid?
I got an email message from “TAX@irs.gov” today claiming that:
Your federal Tax payment (ID: HF2IRS598523201), recently sent from your checking account was returned by the your financial institution.
For more information, please download notification below. (Security PDF Adobe file)
Are people really stupid enough to click a link on a site based in the UK for an IRS tax issue? Are people really stupid enough to click a link to a PHP file that’s supposed to be a PDF file?
Here’s a copy of the message. If you got one of these, “raise your hand” by posting a comment below. I’m curious.
And spread the word; you have no idea how much it irks me that scammers are preying upon people dumb enough to believe crap like this.
