Fraudulent E-mails/Pfishing Schemes
Recently we have received a few calls from customers regarding suspicious emails they've received. Please be aware that there are phishing schemes involving emails that appear to be from IRS.gov, NACHA.org. as well as FDIC.gov. Here is some information that may be beneficial to you, our valued customers:
From IRS.gov website:
The IRS never sends out unsolicited emails, and under no circumstances, requests credit card information and pin numbers through email. Persons receiving emails that claim to be from the IRS should not attempt to visit any site contained within the email and should report suspicious emails to TIGTA or IRS.
Please notify the IRS of any phishing attempts by forwarding the suspicious e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Materials forwarded to this mailbox will be examined and acted on by our information security staff.
