Warning: Latest email scam
This week the Revenue Commissioners have become aware of fraudulent emails and SMS (text messages) purporting to come from Revenue. Some of these seek personal information (name, address, date of birth) from taxpayers and/or seek credit card, debit card or bank account details in connection with a tax or wage subsidy refund.
These emails and text messages did not issue from Revenue.
The Revenue Commissioners never send emails or text messages requiring customers to send personal information via email, text or pop-up windows.
Anyone who receives an email or text message purporting to be from Revenue and suspects it to be fraudulent or a scam should simply delete it. Anyone who is actually awaiting a tax or wage subsidy refund should contact their Revenue Office to check its status.
Anyone who provided personal information in response to these fraudulent emails or text messages should contact their bank or credit card company immediately.
