Beware of fake e-mails when you submit your tax returns
The Swedish Tax Agency has issued a national warning about e-mail that is sent out now when it is time to make your tax returns.
The e-mails sent out by swindlers are easy to identify - a link is sent along with the. If you click on the link, you come to a site where you have to fill in your code and information from your bank card to have access to the money you were promised in the e-mail.
You can be quite sure that the e-mail is a fake. The Swedish Tax Agency never asks for your code or card information by e-mail or SMS. You can only submit such information yourself when you are logged into their e-services, but it is not a thing that they ever ask you for.
According to the police's National Fraud Centre, this type of fake e-mail is often sent out when it is time to make your tax returns. If you receive e-mail telling you to click on links or give information about your bankcard, your first thought should always be that is is fake, the police write.
