by Dori Lloyd -

The Internal Revenue Service warned of an ongoing IRS-impersonation scam that appears to primarily target educational institutions, including students and staff who have ".edu" email addresses. Taxpayers who believe they have a pending refund can easily check on its status at Where's My Refund? on The suspect emails display the IRS logo and use various subject lines such as "Tax Refund Payment" or "Recalculation of your tax refund payment." It asks people to click a link and submit a form to claim their refund. You can read more about this warning on the IRS website.
