Revenue warns of scam targeting people's bank details
The Revenue Commission has warned people to be aware of fraudulent emails and text messages purporting to come from Revenue seeking personal information from taxpayers in connection with a tax refund or seeking credit/debit card details.
The Revenue want to make it clear that they did not send these messages and stated the following:
"The Revenue Commissioners never send emails or text messages requiring customers to send personal information via email, text or pop-up windows."
They've warned that if you receive one of these messages, you should ignore it and simply delete it.
Anyone who provided personal information in response to these fraudulent emails or text messages should contact their bank or credit card company immediately.
If you wish to enquire about the status of your refund, assuming you applied for one, you're advised to contact your local Revenue Office directly.
