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.
