Minister of Finance cautions tax payers against fraudsters

The Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun has advised tax payers to demand for written notice when they receive phone calls from tax officials for payment purposes in order not to fall victim to fraudsters. Mrs Adeosun gave the advice in a statement issued by her Special Adviser, Media and Communications, Mr Oluyinka Akintunde in Abuja.

She said the advice became necessary, following reports that fraudsters, who claimed to be officials of the Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme (VAIDS) were on the loose, and called on members of the public to beware of the new trick so they don’t fall into the hands of fraudsters.
