Just received this email this morning:

" Hi,
You have GST returns due in 3 days up to $373.20 NZ for late ( 2016/2017 ).
To ensure you meet your tax obligations and get the full refund, check the customer refund form at : IRD_Refund_Form (http://ce.eng.kmutnb.ac.th/wp-content/uploads/GST/)

The Customer Services Team"

I am pretty sure this is spam email as I am too old to register for GST, but just to re-confirm that I am not too old to be fooled by them. :)

Are you in business?
Do you currently pay GST?
If yes, then IRD wouldn't send you an email like that anyway, you'd just get penalty if late.

Of course it's spam.

Funny, I received the same email this morning with the same amount showing as you bk T.
They must think there are a lot of gullible people around though..

I gave them my bank details and password and the funds were deposited into my account the next day...........................

Do you really think IRD would send out an email with such bad grammar?
Also wave your mouse above the link and see what URL it is being referred to. Nothing to do with IRD.

Its 100% FAKE.

The link Provided is stopped by Nod:


Here's what the REAL IRD email says ( I've removed my details of course) Notice NO links only instructions to log into IRD as you normally would.


BTW the GST return is due on the 28th :)
