Security while online is a priority. Check out some security alerts from IRD and XERO so you can stay safe online.

IRD Security Alert

IRD have had significant reports of tax refund scam emails being sent to customers (see recent examples at http://www.ird.govt.nz/identity-security/scam/). They usually say that you have a tax refund and ask you to ‘click on a link” to confirm or collect it. DO NOT click as these are not from IRD. They will never advise you that you are due a tax refund through email.

XERO Security Alert

Have you seen a Xero impostor? If you are receiving phishing or malicious emails from someone who is disguising themselves as Xero, then you can report them by forwarding the email to phishing@xero.com. See what to look out for here: https://www.xero.com/blog/security-noticeboard/
