OT: Your Refund is Ready, Comrade!

Mark Mandell - Gone Round In Jersey
>Got a very VERY official e-notice from IRS that a review of my tax return for last year showed that I was due a refund of $96.30, and I should follow the link to the processing website to complete the refund form. The e-mail source was even listed as ".gov"; almost perfect for the observer who might miss the lack of a ".us" before the .gov.

But right-clicking the proffered link disclosed the target as a "refundline" at ".ru" !!!

Egad! Has outsourcing reached the IRS such that they need help from the Russians to process their refund program?

In case any of you missed this one, lets all be mindfull of Mr. Barnum's basic rule, eh?
