That e-mail from the Internal Revenue Service telling you about a refund is bogus.
That's according to the state Attorney General who is warning West Virginians to watch out for the latest Internet scam.
E-mails that look like official IRS communications tell recipients they are entitled to a refund.
The catch is, the person must first provide personal information like Social Security numbers or bank account information to obtain the refund.
The attorney general's office says this type of scam has been around since 2005, and the IRS does not contact taxpayers through e-mail to discuss potential refunds.
