Advises people to ignore, report emails
Taxpayers across Pakistan have complained that they received fake emails regarding the income tax defaulters list from the Federal Board of Revenue’s official email account.
In a statement on Sunday, the board clarified that it had “no connection” with the emails and said that they were being sent from a fake address: email@example.com.
The emails directed 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 against downloading the attachments as they can be infected with harmful viruses and malware. The emails should be ignored and reported to concerned authorities immediately.
