They are counting on that you will get worried, click to get the refund. This takes you to a fake phishing page where they steal your username and password.

Just forward it to [email protected] and they'll take it from there.

I have been getting a couple of these each week. They seem to go in spurts.

I wish I could buy something and have the sales tax reduce the amount that I pay!

I just got one from US Bank about my account. That is some pretty awful security they have if I don't have an account there and its already been compromised Rolling Eyes

is it even worth reporting it to anyone?
