Alert to Taxpayers on fake messages on GST Refund

GST FAKE PORTA

Safeguard yourself from fake messages on GST Refunds
It has been observed that some fraudulent messages are being circulated on WhatsApp, Email and SMS, claiming to process GST refund. It clearly shows that some miscreants have started to take undue advantage of the Covid-19 crisis, by sending out fake messages with phishing links. One such link takes to a portal claimed to have been developed by GSTN. The same is fake and the Government has notified only www.gst.gov.in as the common portal, under the GST Laws.

Through such links, the taxpayers are asked to fill important information such as- Personal details, Address, Refund Details, and KYC Verification, which may not just cause financial losses to the taxpayer but also enable such unscrupulous elements to steal their personal data for mala fide intentions.

Please be informed that GST refunds can be claimed through the GST portal www.gst.gov.in only. Any other source, a portal with a similar interface, a message claiming to process GST refunds are fraudulent. Please also note that GST Network does not ask personal information, refund details, and KYC verification through email, WhatsApp or SMS or through any other website.

Taxpayers are advised to remain cautious against such messages and use the GST portal www.gst.gov.in for refund application or any other GST related activity.
