Inland Revenue is warning people to watch out for a sophisticated email tax scam going around.
An email which looks like it may be from Inland Revenue is a phishing scam, as it asks the recipient for financial information claiming they have a tax refund waiting for them, according to Inland Revenue.
The email address appears as 'Inland Revenue Department' but is actually sent from a different email address, IRDxxxxx@s1.nzr.review, which looks convincing, but is false.
A form is also attached, but Inland Revenue urges recipients not to open it.
Inland Revenue received around 120 calls on Friday about the email scam.
