    Inland Revenue warn of scam

    An email scam is going around, claiming to be from Inland Revenue and asking recipients for financial details.


    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.
