Ignore fake e-mail from Tax-Payment@hasil.gov.my, says IRB

Hi folks,
 
Have you heard the news about fake email from Tax-Payment@hasil.gov.my which claims as if from  IRB!!!
 
I heard about this news over the radio and at TheStarOnline here.
 

Excerpts from TheStarOnline

KUALA LUMPUR: Tax payers have been advised to ignore e-mails purportedly sent by the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) asking them to claim for refund for overpaid income tax.

IRB said the e-mails sent through an address Tax-Payment@hasil.gov.my did not originate from the board.

The board said it had received numerous enquiries from the public regarding the fake e-mails which claimed that overpaid income tax of RM700 would be refunded to tax payers.

This is believed to be the latest scam to hoodwink the public into divulging their personal details, particularly their income tax details to unknown people.

It said that those who have queries should get in touch with the board's customer service centre though e-mail at centre@hasil.gov.my or call 1-300-88-3010.
 
Go to TheStarOnline for full report.
 
Take care and stay alert always!
 
Cheers!
