LATEST SCAMS & INCIDENCES YOU SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR

#1. From NamRA – TAX REFUND EMAIL SCAM

The Namibia Revenue Agency has alerted taxpayers regarding an email scam in circulation reported sent from "support@namra.org.na" which purports to originate from NamRA and requests targeted taxpayers to accept some sort of tax assessment. The recipients of such emails are promised a tax refund of N$50 000.00. 

How to protect yourself

This email does not come from NamRA and taxpayers are urged not to respond to such emails, but rather contact NamRA via email on info@namra.org.na

#2. From FNB Namibia – REMOTE ACCESS FRAUD

Remote access software is becoming a very popular way for fraudsters to gain access to your banking profile. These are sophisticated software programs that enable fraudsters to remotely take control of your PC over the internet.
