Sars E filing scam

I received a mail from Sars Efiling <> stating:

"A payment of R4,350.20 has been made into your account by SARS eFiling

Please click on the link below to process.

Please SIGNON to email us as mails sent to this address cannot be answered."

It looked suspicious because i noticed the link said "sarsfiling" instead of the real sites "sarsefiling". it's missing the letter "e"

    Same thing just happened to me, clicked on the link nothing comesup, the question is where do they get our details becuase not so long ago ive registed on efilling if I'm not mistaken it was 3days ago. Could it be that Sars has a loop hole?

  • WR-EX 21 Jun 2013, 08:33 AM
