(WHAS11) - Look out for a bogus e-mail that's claiming to be from the IRS.

Watch this story

The email indicates that more money from your tax refund is now available. They usually state that after further calculations, people are eligible for a further refund of 165 dollars.

The bogus email sites the IRS's legitimate web site, irs.gov, but the link doesn't work. If you get the e-mail delete it and take no further action.

Responding to the e-mail opens people up to trouble.
