Be Aware - Tax Scams Making Headlines

It’s tax season, which means it’s also time for tax scams, with numerous online scams that attempt to steal people’s tax refunds, bank accounts, or identities.

Websense Security Labs reported in 2014 that it saw approximately 100,000 IRS-related scams in circulation every two weeks and the number of scams are on track to be even higher for 2015.  Many schemes take advantage of users by alleging to have information about the filer’s refund, or noting a problem with the return that was previously filed.

One scam that has already been impacting users this season involves phishing emails claiming to be from Intuit’s TurboTax. The emails prompt users to click on links to verify their identity or update their accounts in an attempt to download malware to the victim’s machine, or steal data such as Social Security numbers or financial information.     

Below are some of the most common email scams users should be cautious about:

  • The email says the user is owed a refund and should forward a bank account number where the refund may be deposited. Once the scammer has the bank account information, that account will see a big withdrawal, not a deposit.
  • The email contains exciting offers or refunds for participating in an “IRS Survey.” This fake survey is actually used to acquire information to perform identity theft.
  • The email threatens the user with fines or jail time for not making an immediate payment, or responding to the email.
  • The email includes a “helpful” downloadable document (e.g. “new changes in the tax law,” a tax calculator, etc.). In reality, the download is a malicious file intended to infect your computer.

How To Avoid Becoming A Tax-Scam Victim

  • Do not respond to emails appearing to be from the IRS.  The IRS does not initiate taxpayer communications through email or social media to request personal or financial information. If you receive an unsolicited email claiming to be from the IRS, send it to phishing@irs.gov.
  • Do not respond to unsolicited emails and do not provide sensitive information via email. If the email appears to be from HCSB, broker, etc., contact them directly. Do not open any attachments or click on links contained in unsolicited or suspicious emails.
  • Carefully select the tax sites you visit. Use caution when searching online for tax forms, advice on deductibles, tax preparers, and other similar topics. Do not visit a site by clicking on a link sent in an email, found on someone's blog, or in an advertisement. The website you land on may look just like the real site, but it may be a well-crafted fake.
  • Do not open email attachments that are not business related. Opening email attachments can result on downloading of a virus that can impact your computer as well as other computers in the bank as well.
  • Be wary unsolicited e-mails with urgent requests for confidential information.  Fraudsters will try to trick you into providing confidential information by making the requests as urgent.
