Haha these all are fraud emails just ignore them. Even I win a lottery or awards like this almost daily. I always find these in my spam folder and don't even bother to open them. I would suggest all to not to fall prey to such fake mails.

Hello eshaan, if you are having problem with your TAX. I guess the person who are right to call is the person on your involved on this such is the people on the City Hall or Tax Officers/Employee. The message you received is a major scam scheme. Just simply save them and send them to the authority and let them to the job. Be very careful on this such scheme.

Scam scam scam scam. There are all kinds of things like this that are going on with the internet and really what they all boil down to is criminals that are trying to get access to the bank accounts of innocent people. It seems like every day that you hear about something like this and I can't help to wonder how these things continue. However, what I've come to believe is that there are people that are foolish enough to believe these things to be the truth.

People will try anything to scam you. I am so glad you saw through this and did not fall for it. It makes me sick that there are so many people out here online with the intent of taking people's money.

Wow friend does not seem to amaze me how so many do this type of fraud daily. Each day something new and like you I worry about new online users and how some can be so needy and believe such fraud to later find they are hurt double by it. This is a excellent warning and grateful more carry people today take a little time to warn many.

Thanks for the information. If we don't really analyze such scams like this, then maybe we'll get hooked. You're such too wise to be scammed. I wonder why these things are permitted. Kudos for you.

Hi didi Hmmm you just saved yourself My friend had lost INR 1,00,000.00 from his bank as he thought that he got the email from the bank (this was 3 years back). I think these emails should normally arrive in the spam folder and I never open any mail on that folder. But at times, I do get a few emails in the inbox. I smile and say Sorry, I do not have any Online Bank or even a credit card... so none for me... and I politely mark it as spam and clean up that folder again... But yes, those who are newbies on the internet must be careful and watchful.
