More targeted spam, this time puportedly from the IRS

The other day, I mentioned a spear-phishing campaign in which the phisher sends you a highly-targeted message telling you that there has been a Better Business Bureau complaint against you and you should click this virus link to learn more.

Well, today I read in Snopes that there is a similar scam involving an email purportedly from the IRS. Same MO as before — don't click the link or you'll find yourself infected with malware.
