IRS warns of scams

I was over at the IRS website getting ready for the 2008 tax season and noticed they have up an alert warning people to be careful about scam e-mails that have been claiming to be from the IRS and the Taxpayer Advocate Service (which is a real independent organization within the IRS), the scam e-mails entice people to fake IRS websites where the scam artist tries to gain access to information to help them steal identities or bank account information.

Don't be suckered into these scams, which often promise refunds or request help in running a sting on scammers. Also remember, the IRS is a government entity. Their URL will always end in .gov, never .com or .eu or anything else non .gov
