Ala. Revenue Dept. warns of email scam | News
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA)- The Alabama Department of Revenue is alerting taxpayers of an e-mail scam in which it says taxpayers are reportedly being advised that they have been awarded gift cards or other prize winnings from the ADOR.
The ADOR says any such claims are false and advises citizens not to reply to any e-mails from someone claiming to represent the ADOR and seeking personal or financial information.
Taxpayers are strongly cautioned not to open any suspicious e-mails or open any links. Do not provide any personal or financial information such as bank account numbers, credit card PIN numbers, or account passwords.
"Taxpayers should always use extreme caution when they receive unsolicited e-mails, from any source, especially those seeking any type of personal or financial information," warned State Revenue Commissioner Julie P. Magee.
The Alabama Department of Revenue does not initiate taxpayer communications through e-mail.
