IRS Cautions Ohioans about New Threat through E-mail Scam

By ScamRipper Oct 27, 2010

INDIANAPOLIS – The IRS is cautioning taxpayers about a new phishing scam. Phishing is a scam in which Internet scammers send seemingly legitimate e-mail messages to trap innocent victims into exposing private and financial information.

Subsequently, the idea of an e-mail scam may be to download malware, or malicious code, onto the recipient’s computer when the recipient opens an attachment to the e-mail or clicks on a link within the e-mail. The malware could win over the victim’s computer hard drive, providing someone remote access to the computer, or it could seem for passwords and further information and send them to the scamster.
