Beware of fraudulent emails claiming you're entitled to tax refunds

There continues to be many fraudulent emails out there trying to get your financial or personal details by claiming that you are entitled to a tax refund, and asking you to "click here" or open attachments.

They are well presented, and often include the ATO or other government department logos, and supposedly real email addresses.

DO NOT RESPOND OR OPEN ATTACHMENTS, OR CLICK LINKS, IN UNSOLICITED EMAILS.

Neither the ATO or BBA Accountants & Advisors will ever email you asking for your credit card details for your refund.

Neither will we lodge your Income Tax Return without your signature, so if you receive such an email but haven't recently signed your Tax Return, delete it immediately.
