Tax Office Warn of Fake Emails

The Tax and Customs Authority (TA) has warned of “fake” emails using the “finance portal” address and reminds taxpayers to ignore them.

The security alert was posted on the Finance Portal website, where it states that ‘the Tax and Customs Authority is aware that some taxpayers have received email messages from addresses such as which asks users to click on the link provided.  These messages are fake and should be ignored. Their purpose is to convince the recipient to access malicious pages by clicking on the suggested link. In no case should anyone do this.’

This is not the first time that at Tax Authorities have detected malicious emails or SMS messages on their site.  The TA asks taxpayers to remain vigilant, and on no account provide or disclose their Portal das Finances password.
