Revenue Commissioners warn of scam stealing personal information

The Revenue has issued a fresh warning of scam text messages going round trying to get people to enter their personal information into dodgy websites.

The scam texts claim to be from the Revenue, and contain links to fraudulent websites that seek personal information like PPSN, names, addresses, and dates of birth.

The Revenue Commissioners are reminding taxpayers that they never send text messages seeking personal information, and states that these did not come from them.

Anyone who receives such a message, or who already has, should delete it immediately.

“Taxpayers that have provided personal information in response to fraudulent text messages should immediately contact their bank or credit card company.”

“For additional security, Revenue also advises that these taxpayers change their myAccount password at the earliest opportunity,” a statement issued reads.

Further advice and information can be found on Revenue’s security page.
