Revenue Commissioners issues fresh warning of phone scam

The Revenue Commissioners has issued a fresh warning of a phone scam going around with scammers pretending to be from the Revenue.

People have been receiving scam phone calls about claiming a tax refund, demanding payment of a tax bill, or saying that a criminal case is being taken against them.

The Revenue has said that if someone has any doubts about a calling claiming to be from them, contact your local office, particularly if it is unexpected.

If a call demands payment in any way and there is doubt, then you are advised to contact the Revenue’s Collector General’s Division (01 738 36 63).

Anyone who mistakenly provides personal information in response to these types of fraudulent phone calls should contact their bank or credit card company immediately and alert the Gardaí.

The Revenue has also issued assurances that these scams in no way involve their own systems or security.
