Phishers know how to spend your tax refund

Tax season is winding up, and phishers are hot on the trail of those refunds. The scam is posing as the IRS, and then offering to help lure recipients in tracking down their refunds.

The ploy is supposed to be representative of the increasing sophistication of online criminals. The thieves are supposed to be chasing the money nowadays – maybe they should be targeting employees of corporate treasury departments instead of individuals desperate for their tax refunds.
