Got an email or text message about a tax refund? It’s a scam
Scammers are sending text messages or emails about your “tax refund” or “tax refund e-statement.” It might look legit, but it’s trying to trick you into clicking on links so they can access your information.
How? They tell you to click a link — supposedly to check on your “tax refund e-statement” or “fill out a form to get your refund.” But it’s a scam and if you click that link, the scammer might steal your identity or put malware on your phone or computer.
Here’s what you need to remember:
- The IRS doesn’t send tax refunds by email or text.
- Never click on any links. It can install malware on your computer or phone, letting scammers steal your personal information.
- If you want to check the status of any pending refund, visit Where’s My Refund on the IRS official website.
- Tell your friends and family members about the scam.
