IRS DOES NOT COMMUNICATE VIA EMAILS

ILL BET THIS MONEY BEING RELEASED TO YOUR ACCOUNT IS SOME SORT OF WINNINGS, PRIZE OR LOTTERY (SUPPOSEDLY)?

HELLO - JUST CHEKING BACK I N SO SEE IF YOU SAW MY ANSWER

DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR INFORMATION TO THESE PEOPLE

...

THIS IS A KNOWN SCAM

IRS DOES NOT USE EMAIL AND JUST MOVING THIS MONEY IS NOT TAXABLE

...

I REPEAT...THIS IS A SCAM
