Revenue Minister Peter Dunne says:

Foreign scammers might have over-stepped the mark with the latest target of their tax refund email scams, says Revenue Minister Peter Dunne.

Mr Dunne and members of his staff received emails today telling them they had tax refunds waiting for them and only had to click on the given link and fill out a claim form to get them.

I’ve had a few of those myself. At the moment I seem to be getting a lot of Paypal ones.

“Inland Revenue would never send you a hyperlink in an email. Delete the email from your inbox and trash folders,” Mr Dunne said.

He said it was notoriously difficult to track down those behind such scam emails and websites.

“So it is likely either Nigerian scammers or Labour trying to add to its email databases.”

Heh.

    The first line is a smaller quote and this one is much longer.

    Might be both. Nigerian scammers working on behalf of the Labour Party. Commission sales.

    Next he’ll be getting emails from the WSPA demanding he release that thing on his head back into the wild.

    The shadow of WhaleLeaks is going to hang over Labour right up until November. As for Peter Dunne rubbing their noses in it; I didn’t think he had it in him.

    Peter Dunne’s getting quite courageous in his twilight years. Told Labour he wouldn’t work with them and everything.
