Revenue warns taxpayers about further email scams


The Revenue Commissioners are aware of the circulation of fraudulent emails purporting to come from Revenue seeking personal information from taxpayers in connection with a tax refund. These phishing emails begin “Dear taxpayer”.

These emails have not been sent from Revenue. The Revenue Commissioners wish to inform taxpayers they do not send emails requiring taxpayers to send personal information via email or pop-up windows.

Again, if you receive one of these emails you should delete it. Customers awaiting a tax refund should contact their local Revenue Office to check its status.

If you have provided personal information in response to a fraudulent email you should immediately contact your bank or credit card company.
