The Independent Inland Revenue Authority has issued new warnings to citizens about malicious e-mail scams, asking them to delete the relevant mails.
In an electronic notification to taxpayers, the AADE states the following:
“Please be aware that malicious email scams continue, with falsification of logos of the Unified Digital Portal gov.gr, which state that the Tax Office informs you that you are entitled to a tax refund and urge you “click to submit a refund request”.
We again draw your special attention, as it is an attempt to deceive through falsification of image and information.
For your protection:
1 DO NOT select any suggested link (link)
2 DO NOT open any attachments in the message
3 Delete the message IMMEDIATELY, as it is fake and contains malicious content.
Characteristic of the attempted deception is the variation of messages and, in some cases, obvious errors in the use of the Greek language.
also, in cases of email fraud, while the message appears to be sent by a government agency (e.g. from @aade.gr or @gov.gr), the actual sender is unknown email address, usually abroad.
We recommend that you exercise caution and check very carefully any similar misleading messages or sms that you may receive in the future.”
