URGENT UPDATE - IRD PHONE SCAM

Posted 1 year, 3 months ago by Maggie Waine    0 comments

Hi everyone,

This is an urgent update for all our clients as there have been a number of you affected by the latest scam targeting tax payers from phishers claiming to be from the Inland Revenue.

The following email has been sent to us directly from our Community Compliance Officer at the Inland Revenue Department for us to circulate to our clients.

 

There is currently a large-scale phone scam running regarding “unpaid taxes”. These calls are not legitimate and are not coming from Inland Revenue. We are working with the relevant authorities to have the phone numbers disconnected; however, new phone numbers continue to be established.
 
Please help us to stop them by:
-    Not responding, or hanging up on those phone numbers (see table below)
-   Contacting your phone provider (for example 2degrees, Spark, Vodafone etc.) and asking them to block the callers
-    Continuing to report phone numbers (if not noted below) to phishing@ird.govt.nz
