If you receive the above email, please do not respond to it or visit the website. This email is being sent by thieves taking advantage of the tax season and posing as H and R Block to gain your information for theft purposes! It's very scary knowing that this is happening and what's even scarier is some people will believe that this email is really from H and R Block. Please don't be these thieves next victim!
