E-mails that claim to have been sent by the Tax Office

14 February 2012

A large number of fraudulent e-mails that claim to have been sent by the "Tax Office" have been detected. These messages use social engineering to encourage the user to provide his/her bank details with the excuse that the user will benefit from a tax refund.

The messages are in Spanish and include the Spanish Government and Tax Office logos, offering greater credibility to the message.

Further information is available on the Internet User Security Office web page (in Spanish).
