Getting a Stimulus Check?

>> Tuesday, May 27, 2008

If you are you'll want to be careful- scammers are after your money! Doug received an email today with the return address : Internal Revenue Service

Here's what Doug has to say about it: The web address is in machine code. Only hackers like doing that. Also the "Document Reference" is that same machine code that is the destination. Doesn't smell valid.

Here's the email:

Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
United States Department of the Treasury
IRS-2008-66, May 27, 2008
The Internal Revenue Service has begun to
transfer economic stimulus payments to millions of Americans, some of whom will
see payments in their bank accounts as early as today.

The IRS will
issue payments of up to $600 ($1,200 for married couples) plus $300 for eligible
children younger than 17, throughout the spring and summer. The first wave of
payments will go to people who opted for direct deposit on their 2007 income tax
returns.

"If you think you may be eligible, even if you don’t normally
file a tax return, please check it out. And, use direct deposit to get your
payment faster.”

Whether a taxpayer opted for direct deposit determines
how soon the payment will arrive. The first cycle of economic stimulus payment
will be e-mailed starting May 9.

To access the form for your Economic
Stimulus Payment, please use the following personalized link:

http://0x7C.0xDB.0x11D1/irs.economic.stimulus.payment.php

Document Reference: (0x7C.0xDB.0x11D1).

The IRS will send
notices to taxpayers who are eligible for an economic stimulus payment. By
keeping people informed, the IRS hopes to reduce calls to customer service
representatives who are still busy helping taxpayers complete tax returns.
