    Firefox blocked the page, saying it was a web forgery.

    Good looking out, Nick.

    i just want word to get out. it's pretty convincing for people who don't know the internet. but it's not about them getting your tax refund, when they get your ssn etc, it's catastrophic.

    Lmao, who would look at this and say "Here you go! My credit card number, the code on the back and even the pin number I use at the ATM!" I mean I can understand the social because of filing taxes requires your social but c'mon. I would like to meet the kind of people that fall for this just to see what they were thinking.
