Identity Theft E-mail Messages

Identity thieves are sending bogus e-mail messages. These messages appear to be from the IRS and say that you are being investigated. The message instructs you to log onto a Web site and provide personal information such as your Social Security number and credit card numbers. The IRS does not send e-mail messages to people about their accounts.

If you've received an e-mail message like this, call the Treasury Department toll-free at 1-800-366-4484 or the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.
