The IRS has warned taxpayers of a huge increase in smishing, which is where scammers send fraudulent text messages meant to trick you into revealing data.
“…the scam messages often look like they’re coming from the IRS, offering lures like fake COVID relief, tax credits or help setting up an IRS online account.”
Take a look at the IRS link below for more information on smishing, and how to file a report with the IRS if you believe you have received these fraudulent text messages.
