ALICANTE and Murcia residents are being warned over fake tax return emails.
The Spanish Ministry of Finance has issued a warning over the fake emails that are being sent to people asking for bank details in order to reimburse money collected through taxes.
The emails state that the recipient has been chosen for a repayment but the Ministry has stated that under no circumstances would they send emails asking for bank or credit card details, but did admit that the messages looked convincing using similar forms and logos.
They have stressed that any return of income is made by established legal procedures by the Tax Agency and is done personally, to the individual or their representative, and never through this method, so vigilance is required in the event of receiving such a communication.
The Ministry has already submitted a file of evidence to criminal investigators relating to this particular case.
