I have a question about a potential IRS scam.?
Someone received a post card in the mail saying she didn't pay last year's taxes. Then she actually sent a copy of her cancelled check to the address on the card!
I have a hard time believing the IRS sends post cards. Does anyone have advice ? Thanks

She should close that bank account, and notify the IRS about the scam at email@example.com

Scam. Tell her to call the bank to see what she needs to do to protect her account.

It is DEFINITELY a scam. The IRS doesn't use post cards.

absolutely a scam. She should contact her bank and probably close the account.

Its a scam. Throw out the postcard and forget it. NOt a bad idea to close this account since she just sent a voided check with all her bank info to a thief.

The IRS does not send postcards. If you owe them money, they send you a letter. If you ignore enough letters, they send a certified one. Your friend should close their bank account and open a new one.
