Its almost tax season and time to file your tax returns with SARS.
SARS has created a simpler way of filing online, however it has opened up an opportunity for cyber criminals to attack and try and steal your personal information as well as your tax refund.
Cyber criminals will use any angle to target you. It could be through fake email addresses, familiar fake email accounts with dangerous attachments and short URLs sent to you in an email.
Fake email accounts are created with an personal information such as telephone numbers to attempt to fool you. Ensure that you do not give any private information over the phone either as attempts have been noted from criminals impersonating SARS employees to attempt to recieve your personal information.
