      If you get any correspondence claiming to be from your bank or the
      IRS and you are asked to provide information about your bank account
      and taxpayer ID number, be suspicious.

      The IRS has recently issued a warning about a scheme that uses phony
      bank correspondence and IRS forms in an attempt to trick taxpayers
      into disclosing their banking data and social security numbers. The
      information is then used to steal the taxpayer's identity and bank
      account deposits. According to the IRS, this scam has been discovered
      all over the country, including Maine, New York, Georgia, North
      Carolina, Texas, California and Washington state. Numerous foreign
      victims have also been identified.

      Further details about this scheme are available online at
      http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-news/ir-02-55.pdf and also at

      Please forward this to any friends, clients or associates and
      encourage them to do the same.
