I-T dept warns tax payers of fake emails

Viewing with concern the spurt in fictitious and unauthorised emails landing in personal Internet addresses of many people, the department is adding a word of “caution” at the end of each email sent by them.

“A number of tax payers have received emails with subjects like ‘tax refund’ and ‘seeking refunds’ prompting us to take such measures. Such messages continue to land in big numbers in individual emails,” a senior I-T department official said.
The department has also asked tax payers to avoid replying to e-mail addresses like “lhxbkw@accounts.net, cvhfvs@accounts.net and nvfmfi@accounts.net.”
These are some of the e-mail id’s which have been found to be fake.
