Scam alert false IRD tax refund notifications

Over the holidays I received a notification  purporting to come from IRD stating that I  was due a refund

this was the email

 

the email address secureserver.net.nz is registered as shown here to Sigi Kirchmair  9 Leach Place  sigi@cactus.net.nz

the link was  to a British web site andytrevakis.com  andy@atreum.co.uk   the chances are that  these persons are either involved or have insecure servers

If you receive such an email  do not  click on the link or respond these are scams

the biggest  clue  that it is a scam is that IRD were  giving money away   telling you the exact amount your getting but not knowing your name…

 

If you receive such an email  send it on to  phishing@ird.govt.nz
