Slovakia’s Financial Administration is warning people about a false website and a false call to deliver documents. Its website has again become a target of fraudsters with the aim of getting data from clients.

“We thus call on people visiting the website of the Financial Administration to check the address properly and do not respond to any sent mail in any case,” said Patrícia Macíková, spokesperson for the Financial Administration, as cited by the TASR newswire.

The fraudsters have been sending people mail from the address judita.novakova@financna/sprava.org and require the submission of transfer documentation while threatening to fine up to €33,000, if the subject does not do so.

At the end of the letter they refer the target to a website that looks exactly like the website of the genuine Financial Administration.

“The Financial Administration is announcing that it is sending no mail with a call for transfer documentation nor is it threatening to fine anybody up to €33,000 if they do not do so,” said Macíková. “Judita Nováková is not an employee of the Financial Administration and thus she is not empowered to carry out deeds on their behalf.”

The Financial Administration warns people against opening any links from this site. The address of the Financial Administration’s website is www.financnasprava.sk and the administration is not responsible for any other addresses.

For the second time

Data of all its clients continues to be safe and making a false copy of the Financial Administration does not have any influence on them, according to Macíková.

Macíková recalled that fraudsters made a false copy of the Financial Administration’s web site earlier this year. At that time, they urged people to install malicious software on their computers which they labelled as an “electronic communication”. This ransom ware then encrypted their files in the infected computer and the fraudsters required ransom for decryption.
