Revenue Commissioners have issued a warning about the latest email scam to hit people’s inboxes.
Their security team has advised anybody who followed up to the email to contact their bank or credit card company immediately.
The fraud email and texts purport to come from Revenue and claim they are looking for an update on your personal information in connection with a tax refund.
“These emails and text messages did not issue from revenue,” a statement from Revenue reads.
“The Revenue Commissioners never send emails or text messages requiring customers to send personal information via email, text or pop-up windows.”
Revenue are now advising anyone who receives an email or text message purporting to be from Revenue and suspects it to be fraudulent or a scam to simply delete it.
“Anyone who is actually awaiting a tax refund should contact their local Revenue Office to check its status,” they added.
**Clarification: An earlier version of this story referenced a legitimate email from Revenue, – an ‘Important notice for PAYE workers’. – which is genuine. We apologise for the confusion
