Tax office warning

THE Australian Tax Office is warning people about another bogus email circulating that claims to offer a refund from the ATO.

The email claims to be from the ATO and shows a tax office email address as the sender.

The email uses the tax office logo and includes the words 'You are eligible to receive a tax refund of $250.50' in the subject heading.

The email asks people to complete a refund form by clicking on a link in the email, which directs them to a bogus tax office website and asks for personal and credit card details.

Second Commissioner David Butler said anyone who received the email should delete it immediately.

Anyone who has already entered their credit card information into the bogus site should immediately report it to their credit card provider.

More information on online security, including examples of scam forms and emails, is available on: www.ato.gov.au
