It appears that the email you received from “Caleb Davis” at SETC Relief Consultants may be a potential scam. The email suggests that self-employed individuals may be eligible for a significant refund through the IRS’s Self-Employed Tax Credit program and encourages recipients to check their estimated refund amount on the setcreliefconsultants.com website.

Upon further research, it seems that there have been reports of similar schemes where scammers impersonate legitimate organizations or government entities to trick individuals into providing personal information or paying fees under the guise of claiming tax credits or refunds. It is important to exercise caution when receiving unsolicited emails offering financial assistance or tax-related benefits, especially if they require you to click on unknown links or provide sensitive information.

To gather more information and verify the legitimacy of SETC Relief Consultants, I recommend checking online resources such as the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, consumer protection agencies, and conducting a general web search for any reviews, complaints, or warnings related to this organization. Additionally, you may want to contact the IRS directly or consult with a tax professional to determine your eligibility for any tax credits or refunds.

If you suspect that you have been targeted by a scam or phishing attempt, it is advisable to report the incident to the appropriate authorities, such as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) or the Anti-Phishing Working Group, to help prevent others from falling victim to similar frauds. Remember to be cautious and skeptical of unexpected emails or messages requesting personal or financial information, and always verify the legitimacy of any offers or claims before taking action.
