Softpedia Says Scary Spam Scams
According to Softpedia, another IRS malware campaign has been spotted in the wild and even though the message is new, the way it functions remains the same.
Unsuspecting victims receive an email which seems to come from the much feared U.S institution, The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), with the subject, “Federal Tax Report”.
It contains a message that reads something like, “There are arrears reckoned on your account over a period of 2010-2011 year.”
It continues, “You will find all calculations according to your financial debt, enclosed. Sincerely, IRS.”

Some malware is going around,
In IRS emails it’s found.
It says you owe money,
Now that’s just not funny,
Scams like this really abound.
Don’t answer the spam when it comes,
Or you just might send in large sums.
Delete it in haste,
So your cash you won’t waste,
Keep it out of the hands of those bums.
