Consumer Alerts

June 2012 

Taxpayers should be on the lookout for a new, email-based phishing scam now circulating that targets Department of Defense military members, retirees and civilian employees. The email appears to come from Defense Finance and Accounting Services and displays a .mil email address. The email states that those receiving disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) may be able to obtain additional funds from the IRS. Email recipients are then asked to send various VA and IRS documents containing their personal and financial information, such as copies of VA award letters or their income tax returns, to an address in Florida.

The information on these documents is then used by the scammers to commit identity theft. Typically, identity thieves use someone’s personal data to empty the victim’s financial accounts, run up charges on the victim’s existing credit cards or apply for new loans, credit cards, services or benefits in the victim’s name. 

For more information on phishing scams, please see Suspicious e-Mails and Identity Theft

Please be aware that the Internal Revenue Service does not intiate taxpayer communication through e-mail.  If you get an e-mail and the sender is claiming to represent the IRS, please let us know or report it to phishing@irs.gov

NACHA does not process nor otherwise touch ACH transactions that flow via the ACH Network nor between financial institutions and their customers.  NACHA does not send communications of any type to persons or organizations about individual ACH transactions 

These incidents are accurring with greater requentcy and increased sophistication.  Perpetrators are conducting similar phishing attacks in which they are sending fraudulent emails that claim to be from Federal Reserve Banks, IRS. other Federal Agencies, as well as commercial financial institutions, payment organizations, technology companies and business.

Other scam alerts:

Email sent from the following address: alert@fdic.gov   It appears to be sent from FDIC and has a subject line "FDIC-your business account"  In the email it states that they have important information about your business' bank.  The FDIC website lists consumer alerts on a couple of scams like this one and they are all fraudulent.  The FDIC does not issue unsolicited emails to consumers or business account holders.
