Here's a phish spam I just got:

From: Department of the Treasury
Subject: US Internal Revenue Service

After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have determined
that you are eligible to receive a tax refund of $189.60.
Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 6-9 days in order to process it.
It will be stored in our secure database for maximum of 3 days
while we process the results of this nationwide survey.

A refund can be delayed for a variety of reasons.
For example submitting invalid records or applying after the deadline.

To access your tax refund online, please click on the link below

BTW, mousing over the link showed me an address. I guess the Fed is too good for Netzero. Your tax dollars at work, folks.

As if the bad grammar, poor English, and the fact that the government NEVER gets anything processed in 6-9 days aren't huge tipoffs.

But the sad thing is many stop their brains at the dollar amount & act without any further thought.
