It happens every tax season, the scammers come out impersonating the IRS. This year is no different. The latest scheme involves malicious users posing as IRS “Inspectors” innocently sending you your W-9 form. The email is signed by the IRS “employee” whose email address is the very personalized “email@example.com.”
Remember, the IRS will not contact you through email, text or social media. They almost always send correspondence via regular mail and rarely via telephone.
