Advice for avoiding online scams
Fraud attempts may take the form of mass emails impersonating the Tax Agency and using its logos.
These emails usually offer a tax refund which does not actually exist.In order to receive the money, the recipient has to go to a website where they are asked to give their bank account and credit card details.Do not click on any links or attached files that come from a suspicious email.
The Tax Agency will never request your confidential, financial or personal information, account numbers or card numbers by email, and we never send attachments with invoice information or any other data.
Do not answer these messages, they are an attempt to commit fraud by impersonating the Tax Agency.
This is not the first time that this type of mail or SMS has been used, which is why raising awareness and informing citizens is essential.We recommend:
Do not open messages from unknown or unsolicited users - delete them straight away.
Not answering these messages under any circumstances.
Take caution when following links in emails even if they are from known contacts.
Take caution when downloading email attachments even from known contacts.
For maximum security, always type the address of the Tax Agency website into the browser, rather than clicking on a link.
And especially, before logging into the e-Office, check the site security certificate.
