The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has issued a warning about a phishing scam currently in circulation.
The ATO said scammers are sending fake ATO emails claiming they do not have credit/debit card details required to transfer tax refunds.
The email instructs recipients to login to a fake site called ‘ATO Office Portal’ or ‘ATO Gateway Portal’, where they are asked for information such as their online banking credentials, credit card numbers, limits and addresses.
???? PHISHING SCAM ALERT ???? Look out for this new scam email requesting your credit/debit card details. Do not click on the link in the email or disclose your personal info. Details: https://t.co/SzEN9lRZNX pic.twitter.com/Ko6JCKYhYS
