The IRS goofed? E-mail spoof.

Today I got e-mail unsolicited e-mail from the IRS - several pieces actually. And guess what - they want to give me money! Those folks at the IRS were Sooo nice to let me know. It's a phishing expedition and originated from Lagos - but still, the message got my attention. Does anyone else get that small adrenaline rush when you see a return address from the IRS on snail mail (or e-mail)?

Check out the mail - spelling errors and persecution.

I just hate it when my wrong inputs get persecuted.

Congratulations on your windfall. I recommend a target retirement fund.
