Latest SARS Scams, Phishing & Fake site alerts



As a taxpayer, it's crucial that you're aware of scams that aim to defraud taxpayers. The
festive season is almost here and every year, criminals use people’s financial desperation to
enrich themselves.

So-called ‘tax experts’ will contact you with promises of making your life easier by securing
a tax refund on your behalf. When you use their services, they pocket your money and
disappear, never responding to your messages and calls.

SARS has received a flood of calls from victims of this scam in the past and is warning
taxpayers to be careful of people posing as tax experts.

 

Here are the latest scams you need to be aware of. 

If you suspect criminal activity, you can report it anonymously to SARS at 0800 00 2870 or
by completing an online form on www.sars.gov.za.
