I heard on the news that there are emails being circulated on the net which claim to be from the IRS asking for personal information in order to process your economic stimulus payment. Please remember that the IRS never asks for any information via email. If you receive this email, do not click on any links and delete it.

Yeah they have updated the one they used to send out about claiming a refund. I find it hard to believe so many people fall for these scams.

That sounds like another phishing scam, to me. I think it stinks that people are tupid and greedy and underhanded enough o do something like that, scamming people into giving them information to steal. That really stinks!!
