Warning: email scam

The Citizens Information Board has become aware of fraudulent emails which relate to a tax refund and which use a fake “@citizensinformation.ie” email address.

These emails did not issue from the Citizens Information Board.

Anyone who receives an email purporting to be from the Citizens Information Board and suspects it to be fraudulent or a scam should simply delete it.

Anyone who provided personal information in response to these fraudulent emails should contact their bank or credit card company immediately.
