Area residents have reported receiving emails claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service. The official-looking email tells recipients that there is a problem with their electronic tax refund, and directs them to click on a link in the email to complete their refund. If you get an email like this, DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK and do not believe the claim that it’s a secure process. The scammers are trying to either steal your identity or hack your computer.
