Submit your economic stimulus payment online form


I found this in the spam folder. It is another lame Phishing attempt to take advantage of the current economic crisis to gather social security numbers

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 document attached to your email.

Note: If filing or preparation fees were deducted from your 2008 Refund or you
received a refund anticipation loan, you will be receiving a check instead of a
direct deposit.
