E-Mail Scam

Chippewa Falls Police want to remind you to use caution when you get unsolicited e-mail from a sender you don't know.

Officers say fraudulent e-mails that appear to be from the Internal Revenue Service are ending up in people's inboxes.

They typically tell you that you have a tax refund coming, then you're directed to a web link that asks for personal and financial information.

Officers say the real IRS doesn't sent out unsolicited e-mails and it doesn't notify taxpayers about their refunds through e-mail.
If you get one of these emails, forward it to phishing@irs.gov.
