Thats the word from Avast.Because many lost their money in such IRS scams.
So how NOT to be a victim:-
1)Never give any financial details on non gov site.Thats correct,because the IRS works from .gov sites.So if you have received any email asking your financial information.One word avoid.Because IRS never would email you for asking your financial information.
2)Never believe on what you read on walls.Yeah,you read that right.Because some may put flyers telling you to submit some fees,social security number and bank account details for getting tax refund.
3)And report to local authorities,if you come across any such incident.
This might help some one from getting duped by scammer.Spread the word fellas.
