*****************************************************************************************************************************

      The Inland Revenue Department today (September 4) reminded members of the public to stay vigilant regarding bogus voice message phone calls purporting to be made by the department. The scammers use pre-recorded voice messages and require the call recipient to provide personal particulars. The department affirmed that it would not make pre-recorded voice calls to the public, nor require call recipients to provide personal data by following instructions. 

      The department has reported the case to the Police for 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: taxinfo@ird.gov.hk) for verification.
