"Notice of Underreported Income"

There is an email going around with this subject line trying to get your personal information and download malware to your computer. The copy of the email says:

Taxpayer ID: yournamehere-00000174073547US
Issue: Unreported/Underreported Income (Fraud Application)
Please review your tax statement on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website (click on the link below):
review tax statement for taxpayer id: yournamehere-00000174073547US
Internal Revenue Service

We changed the name to "ANYNAME" at ANYDOMAIN.COM and we went to the same page. Here is the screen shot

You will notice that the link in the middle of the page is an executable file (.exe)--DO NOT CLICK ON THIS.

With Uncle Sam looking for more money these days this is a nefarious scam. We have also seen phishing emails from: Bank of America, Ally, Chase and Morgan Stanley....there are probably donzens of others we have not seen.

Be careful and follow common sense email protocol.
