“Internal Revenue Service” “Notice”
This clumsy and short email appears to be sent from email@example.com and is headed with “Verify your billing address” in the subject line. New Zealand lawyers and law firms are among the organisations which have been targeted with this email.
Any credibility built up by the genuine-looking service@ird address is quickly eroded by the bad English, layout and transformation of IRD into the “Internal Revenue Service”. Delete it.
