Fake IRS TAX Refund

How do I know this is a scam?

1) The IRS does not care enough to send me, you or Jesus Christ himself a personalized email about a tax refund.

2) The IRS seal in this scam email is linked from Wikipedia *indicating that whoever made this is a hilariously stupid scammer*

3) Found this link in the email’s “Click here”: http://www.terast.co.jp

I hope the U.S. IRS is tracking this idiot.

    Thank you. I was certain this was a scam but it’s always good to see someone else has received the same. Only difference was they used a different logo and was from internal revenue service tax refund service @ online.irs.gov

    i just received the same thing, saying i get $620 back but then they wanted all my credit card, debit card, ssn information so i decided to do a search, and i even tried to click on the icon, contact the irs and nothing happened. I think this guys legs should both be broke for the scam. If I get a hold of him, he is going to wish he was never born.
