Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning dear readers: How’s everyone this week? As a public service, I’d like to remind everyone to be alert to “phishing.” The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media. There are also bogus phone calls going around from people claiming to work for the IRS or Microsoft. Just hang up on them or get a name and phone number and tell them you’ll call them back … then report them. Do not give any information to these people or open any emails or attachments. What is phishing? Phishing is a scam typically carried out by unsolicited email or websites that pose as legitimate sites to lure unsuspecting victims to provide personal and financial information.
