Idea of the Week #5

Please be aware of emails from EFTPS! There have been many emails sent out appearing to be from EFTPS.gov regarding online tax payments. In reality these emails contain viruses that can harm you computer and compromise sensitive information such as bank passwords.

Below is an excerpt from the EFTPS website:

“Remember! EFTPS values your privacy and security and will never attempt to contact you via e-mail. If you ever receive an e-mail that claims to be from EFTPS or from a sender you do not recognize that mentions a payment made through EFTPS, forward the e-mail to phishing@irs.gov or call the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1.800.366.4484.”

Be careful in opening emails from unknown sources!
