The Revenue Commissioners have warned of the existence of a fraudulent e-mail purporting to come from Revenue seeking personal information from taxpayers in connection with a tax refund. The e-mail asks the recipient to submit personal details including date of birth and debit/credit card details. This e-mail did not issue from Revenue.
The Revenue Commissioners never send e-mails which require customers to send personal information via e-mail or pop-up windows.
Anyone who receives an e-mail purporting to be from Revenue and suspects it to be fraudulent or a scam is asked to forward it to [email protected]. Alternatively recipients can contact their tax district to check the status of any refund that may be due.
Anyone who provided bank information in response to these e-mails should contact his/her bank or credit card company immediately.
