Taxpayers across the country have complained about receiving fake emails regarding the income tax defaulters list from the Federal Board of Revenue’s official email account. The board clarified in a statement on Sunday, that FBR has “no Link” with the emails.
A fake email address [email protected] is used to send such emails. The emails are directed to people to check their names in an Income Tax Defaulters List attached in the messages. Some people received emails claiming to contain passwords of the attached defaulter list. FBR has warned people not to download the attachments as they can be infected with harmful viruses and malware. The emails should be ignored and reported to concerned authorities immediately.
