Alert issued on fake tax emails

The Inland Revenue Department today issued an alert concerning fraudulent emails purportedly issued by the department which invite recipients to claim tax refunds.

The department emphasised that it has no connection with the fraudulent emails and has reported the case to Police for further investigation.


It also reminded the public not to open any suspicious emails.
