The IRS Issued an Urgent Warning Against an IRS/FBI-Themed Ransomware Phishing Attack

Heads-up! The IRS is warning against a new phishing scam that tries to make you download an FBI questionnaire. But if you click the link, your computer will be infected with ransomware instead. The scam email uses the emblems of both the IRS and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Remember that the IRS does not use email, text messages or social media to discuss personal tax issues, such as those involving bills or refunds.

Always remember: “When in doubt, throw it out!”

Our User Security Awareness Training will help manage the problem with social engineering.

Remember, think before you click! Let’s stay safe out there.
