Regards, IRS

I get a LOT of spam. I ignore most of it but I had to laugh when I got this one. Obama actually IS creating jobs with his stimulus plan.

From: "Internal Revenue Service"
Subject: Economic Stimulus Payment online form [ID: SP-603.9731]

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have determined that
you are eligible to receive a Stimulus Payment.
Please submit the Stimulus Payment Online Form in order to process it.

A Stimulus Payment can be delayed for a variety of reasons.
For example submitting invalid records or applying after the deadline.

To submit your Stimulus Payment form, please download the attached document.

Note: If filing or preparation fees were deducted from your 2007 Refund or you
received a refund anticipation loan, you will be receiving a check instead of a
direct deposit.

If my Spidey senses hadn't already gone off by the mere receipt of an email from the IRS, the 'regards, IRS' would have tripped the alarm for sure. I didn't download the email, let alone open the attachment.
