Fake email reminder from ‘Tax Office’

19 January 2018

A scam email purporting to come from the Netherlands Tax Administration is doing the rounds.

The message is supposedly sent by the Dutch government web service ‘MijnOverheid’. It reminds recipients that they are due € 98.02. Don’t pay up, this email is a scam.

Our advice
Don’t pay this ‘outstanding amount’. The email is fake and any money you pay will go straight into the pockets of the con artists who crafted it.
