Internal Revenue Service - Tax Refound


02/16/2009

I found this in the spam folder. It is a lame attempt at getting information in exchange for a "promised" $620.50. It would have helped if the subject was spelled correctly. Refund is correct, Refound does not exist:

Internal Revenue Service - Tax Refound

Here is the lame email:



After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have determined
that you are eligible to receive a tax refund under section 501 (c) (3) of the
Internal Revenue Code. Tax refund value is
$620.50.
Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 3-6 days in order to IWP
the data received.


If you distribute funds to other organizations, your records must show whether
they are exempt under section 497 (c) (11). In cases where the recipient org.
is not exempt under section 497 (c) (11), you must have evidence the funds will
be used for section 497 (c) (11) purposes.

If you distribute fund to individuals, you should keep case histories showing
the recipient's name and address; the purpose of the award; the manner of
section; and the relationship of the recipient to any of your officers, directors,
trustees, members, or major contributors.

For security reasons, we will record your ip-address, the date and time.
Deliberate wrong inputs are criminally pursued and indicated.

I did click on the link to see what they created for a website. Unfortunately, it is already detected as a phishing site, and I could not get any samples of what information they were seeking....
