Email Scam Consumer Alert
The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP) would like to inform Wisconsin residents of an email scam regarding taxpayer information. The email states that the recipient owes the Department of Revenue (DOR) taxes, and will face additional penalties if they do not open the attachment. The attachment can damage your computer or give access to personal information. DATCP warns individuals not to open any attachments and to delete the email. DOR does not communicate to taxpayers through email nor does it ask for personal information by phone or email.
