Warning: Phishing

Fraudsters try on various occasions to obtain information concerning accounts and credit cards, as well as copies of taxpayers' passports by sending e-mails/sms. The FTA is now issuing a warning not to respond to these e-mails/sms or ones of a similar nature. 

Any FTA claims are sent to taxpayers solely by letter and indicate the dossier number. The FTA never makes enquiries about taxpayers' confidential information via e-mail/sms. Should you receive fraudulent e-mails, please report this to the FTA and forward the e-mails to the following address:
media@estv.admin.ch
