Fraudulent Tax Refunds

I’m getting a couple of these e-mails every day now.

Tax Refund Spam E-Mail

Tax Refund Spam E-Mail

My ISP marks them as spam.  But they are.

Note that it is not specifically addressed to me in any way and that there is no mention of my name or tax number.

Don’t ever login.  This one was hosted in Korea.

  2. If something isn’t personal, it’s not kosher.

    For instance, when my bank sends me an e-mail to say that my credit card statement is available, they put my postcode in it.

    They could go a lot further. In fact because they didn’t put a lot of passive security around their web sites, it’s one of the reasons we get so much fraud.
