The false SMS that announces that the Treasury will make a payment to you and only seeks to steal your savings


At the same time that many taxpayers are wondering when the second installment of the income tax return is paid in 2022, a new scam spreads like wildfire in SMS format supplanting the Tax Agency with the sole purpose of getting hold of the bank card details of their victims.

Avast thus warns of a new ‘phishing’ campaign detected in Spain that tries to deceive by posing as the Tax Agency are not new, and even are usually repeated every year on the occasion of the Income campaign. And like all of them, the campaign now detected by Avast analysts reproduces the sending of false SMS messages.

These messages include a link that, when the user clicks on it, redirects him to a page that supposedly is about the Tax Agency, with the aim of build trust in the victim to enter your details bank card, including CCV and pin code.

Likewise, the victim is urged to enter a code that will supposedly be received through an SMS (which the victim never receives), or by opening the bank appfrom the phone itself, where a refund notification is supposed to be received.

Faced with this type of scam, Avast Security Evangelist, Luis Corrons, recommends delete SMS. And if you have doubts about whether it is real or fake, do not click on the link or download attachments, but contact the bank or organization whose identity they are trying to impersonate.

Corrons warns that, in this specific case, although an attempt is made to imitate the entity’s real website, it lacks functionalitysince, for example, it does not change the language when selecting the option, even though they appear displayed.
