Your bank account will be seized and you will face 40 days provisional detention. The threats in a scam email purporting to come from CJIB are quite serious.
CJIB is the Centraal Justitieel Incassobureau or Central Fine Collection Agency – an executive agency of the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice. It has nothing to do with this latest email posing as the agency, which has been sent to a large number of people.
Recipients are told they are due € 176.91 for ‘additional municipal taxes and arrears with the Tax Office’. This is utter nonsense. Keep in mind that CJIB never informs people of a fine or sends any other notification by email.
Here’s an example of the email (click to enlarge):
