Fraudulent SMS message purportedly issued by Inland Revenue Department


  The Inland Revenue Department (IRD) today (April 27) alerted members of the public to a fraudulent SMS message purportedly issued by the department that requests the recipient to settle his or her outstanding tax. The fraudulent SMS message provides a hyperlink to a fake IRD website (https://irdgovhk.com/chi/tax/e_alert.php) that seeks to obtain the recipient's personal particulars.

  The department has no connection with the fraudulent SMS message and has reported the case to the Police for further investigation. Members of the public are reminded not to open any suspicious SMS message.
