If you have an email address ending in .edu in the Lake Area, the IRS wants you to be aware.
The Internal Revenue Service says there’s a phishing scam going around targeting students at both public and private universities.
Officials say you might see an email that looks like it’s from the I-R-S, and the subject line might say, ‘Tax Refund Payment’ or ‘Recalculation of your tax refund payment.’
The email might ask you to click a link before a website starts asking for personal information, like a social security number.
If you get this kind of email you’re urged not to open it and to report it to the I-R-S.
