New tax scam showing up online

Better Business Bureau wants you to be careful

Tax season is still months away, but the Better Business Bureau says it's starting to get complaints about a type of fraud that's going after people who file online.

The BBB says e-mails are being sent out that look like they're from the IRS.

The message says there was a problem transferring your tax refund into your bank account.

You're then supposed to click a link to find out how to get your money.

But when you do, that link really downloads a virus onto your computer.

Keep in mind, the IRS says it will never send you any kind of e-mail like that. And if you're really unsure about your tax refund, just call the IRS directly.
