Tax Refund New Message Alert! 2

Have you noticed how many scammers like ending the subject line of their scam emails with an exclamation mark?

It’s a new year, so it’s time for a new round of fake tax refund emails.  The Inland Revenue don’t email you if you have a tax refund due, they write to you.

DO NOT OPEN the attachment to this email which, I suspect, will contain a trojan.

    Just found FOUR of these messages in my junk box. Didn’t open but decided to dig around a bit to see if it could be dubious. As with Mike Kay (above) ‘suspicion confirmed. Thank you.’

    Thanks for that. I had one of these but was suspicious so I did a Google search and here we are, suspicion confirmed. Thank you.
