After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have determined that you are eligible to receive a tax refund of $109.30. Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 6-9 days in order to process it.

A refund can be delayed for a variety of reasons. For example submitting invalid records or
applying after the deadline.

To access the form for your tax refund, please click here :

If you get this DO not fill out the form..they want your VISA, MC number, expiration date and code…to get your “refund”

The IRS does not have your email address – if you were getting a refund – you would get a notice in the MAIL saying that and stating why the refund!

Beware – there are new scams every day – I keep being asked to fill out forms for banks that I don’t use…guess the scammers hope to hit a live one…

Update on the 23rd…

Now I have received 3 or 4 of these IRS refund notices…so be more aware – they are ALL scams – the IRS does not hound you about refunds…it sends them out!
