IRS Warning: Look Out for Cyberscams

- NEW YORK -- Security experts say tax filing season creates a perfect storm for cyberscams.

The IRS is warning people to be on the lookout for fraudulent tax-themed messages that appear to be from them or online tax prep programs -- but are actually scams.

Crooks could use the information you put in those e-mails to get your personal data or seize control of your computer files.

The IRS says it never uses e-mail to request personal or financial information.
