FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The latest scam is getting e-mailed to local businesses and looks like it’s from the IRS.
The fake e-mail claims the business's latest tax payment has been rejected and then urges the business owner to call a number or e-mail the sender.
President of the Northern Indiana BBB Mike Coil says, “They're being asked to contact them. The next step will be, okay, give me your correct number - your identification number - and then give me your bank account number that you sent in for these payments. The next step after that is somebody cleaning out their accounts.”
If a business owner receives this e-mail, it's best to ignore the e-mail and delete it.
