Getting paranoid now. This email heading was waiting for me when I got home:

"ne_pas_repondre@dgfip.finances.gouv.fr" <ne_pas_repondre@dgfip.finances.gouv.fr>
ajouter à mes contacts
créer une alerte SMS
à ne_pas_repondre@dgfip.finances.gouv.fr

objet REMBOURSEMENT DE L'IMPÔT : COTISATION FONCIÈRE

It says that I am due a rebate of €380 on my tax fonciere and there is a link which I have resisted clicking.

I thought that if I was due it would be automatic but lower down it advises me to claim.

Any thoughts?

My advice would be not to click on the link. You need to be absolutely sure that the mail originated from the impots.

Log in to your account on the gov website and check it out.

Thanks, I'll check it out, if I can remember which of my myriad passwords applies. 8-|

Just put this, a copy of part of what you posted, ne_pas_repondre @ dgfip.finances.gouv.fr into a search engine, shows it to be a scam

It's definitely a scam as Peake says. I had one too. The fraudsters overspent at Christmas and now they're trying to claw some back.

Thanks, checked the real gouv impots site ad it says to ignore, not click and delete. Which I will do straight away.

I was half expecting them to want me to send it on but apparently not, so I haven't

Thanks again for the advice.

Indeed, especially as that was the exact total of what we paid. 8-|

I ignore any notification like that that appears online. Our tax foncière etc always comes through the post therefore any reimbursement notification would probably come the same way.
I reckon that any email that is about money is going to be a scam, particularly if it look as if you are going to get anything out of it !
