IRS warns university students and staff about email scam

The IRS yesterday issued a warning concerning an ongoing IRS-impersonation scam that appears to primarily target educational institutions, including students and staff who have ".edu" email addresses. The IRS has received complaints about the impersonation scam in recent weeks from people with such email addresses. The phishing emails appear to target university and college students from both public and private, profit and non-profit institutions. The suspect emails display the IRS logo and use various subject lines such as "Tax Refund Payment" or "Recalculation of your tax refund payment." It asks people to click a link and submit a form to claim their refund. That form requests much more personal identification information than the IRS does on its "Where's My Refund?" webpage.

The IRS warned people who receive the scam email not to click on the link in the email message.
