beware of phishing scams

Several phishing scams are prevalent right now through phone calls, emails, and other media.

  1. Fake phone calls claiming to be from IRS. The real IRS usually will try to contact by postal mail first.
  2. Fake emails pretending to be Apple or Google or another company.  A fake security alert. Although Apple and Google do send emails like this, some scammers have made spoofs that appear to be from those companies however they are not real and they will try to get your log in credentials and may try to get other private (such as contacts list) or financial information.
