Public alerted to bogus phone calls purporting to be made by Inland Revenue Department
The Inland Revenue Department today (January 25) alerted members of the public to bogus voice message phone calls purporting to be made by the department. The department would not make any pre-recorded voice calls to the public, nor require a call recipient to input personal data by following certain instructions.
The department has reported the case to the Police for further investigation. If members of the public have any doubt about the identity of a caller who claims to be an officer of the department, they may contact the department (Tel: 187 8088; email: firstname.lastname@example.org) for verification.
