While surfing the web I ran into a site that gave me a SCAM pop-up. If you receive this pop-up or other like it, DO NOT call the number. Do not install anything. Just get out of the website. Close the browser if you have to. This is a common tactic. Scammers try to use fear to get you to do what they want.

According to the US Postal Inspector Service, “U.S. Postal Inspectors investigate any crime in which the U.S. Mail is used to further a scheme–whether it originated in the mail, by telephone, or on the Internet. The use of the U.S. Mail is what makes it mail fraud.”
US Postal Inspector Service Reporting mail fraud can be done in several ways:

If you believe you’re a victim of fraud related to the U.S. Mail, including mailed sweepstakes, lotteries, on-line auctions, work-at-home scams or chain letters, report your concern to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service as mail fraud.
All information is voluntary, but the more you provide, the more likely it is that we can help you. We may share your information with other agencies if it comes under their jurisdiction. See the Privacy Act Statement for more details. This site uses secure methods to transfer data.
The Postal Inspection Service will contact you only if more information is needed. We gather data on mail-related crime to determine whether a violation has occurred. While we can’t guarantee we can recover lost money or items, your information can help alert Postal Inspectors to problem areas and possibly prevent others from being victimized. Inspectors base their investigations on the number, substance and pattern of complaints. We ask you to keep all original documents related to your complaint.
If you prefer to file your complaint over the phone, please call 1-800-ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777).

Every tax year there is a flood of “IRS TAX” Scams/phishing/malware attempts sent to Americans from all over the world. First of all the IRS does not care enough to tell you anything except to give them money by Snail Mail.
If you receive any scams/phishing or malware report it: http://www.irs.gov/uac/Report-Phishing
The IRS doesn’t initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information. This includes requests for PIN numbers, passwords or similar access information for credit cards, banks or other financial accounts.
What is phishing?
Phishing is a scam typically carried out through unsolicited email and/or websites that pose as legitimate sites and lure unsuspecting victims to provide personal and financial information.
Report all unsolicited email claiming to be from the IRS or an IRS-related function firstname.lastname@example.org. Recent scams have used the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) to attract potential victims. Also, if you’ve experienced any monetary losses due to an IRS-related incident, please report it to the Treasury Inspector General Administration (TIGTA) and file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) through their Complaint Assistant to make the information available to investigators.
NOTE: Please refer to Contact the IRS if you have a tax question not related to phishing or identity theft.
