DBASS Manager, Sean O'Reilly provides an update on the latest phishing email scam.
I received a number of emails over the weekend and one this morning, from various different email addresses (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) telling me that I am due a tax refund. A number of my colleagues and clients received similar emails.
These are all Phishing Scam emails.

For those who don’t know, phishing scams are attempts by hackers, con-artists and other criminals to gain access to someone’s computer, financial information or other personal data in order to cause them harm. They can often result in bank and credit card fraud.
The Revenue Commissioners have confirmed that they never send emails requiring customers to send personal information via email, SMS or pop-up windows.
