Mailing Related to Unclaimed Refunds
Most Recent Scams
The IRS warns taxpayers to be on the lookout for a new scam mailing that tries to mislead people into believing they are owed a refund.
The new scheme involves a mailing coming in a cardboard envelope from a delivery service. The enclosed letter includes the IRS masthead with contact information and a phone number that do not belong to the IRS and wording that the notice is "in relation to your unclaimed refund.”
