Fraudulent emails on behalf of NSSO circulate en masse

Please note that a number of phishing emails are currently circulating on behalf of the National Social Security Office (NSSO). In these emails, you are invited to perform an action on the NSSO portal in connection with your simplified tax return. If you look closely, you will see that the sender of the message is not the NSSO and that the link does not go to the NSSO site, but to a fraudulent site. You can easily check this by hovering your mouse cursor over the link or by holding your finger on the link on a smartphone or tablet. This will show you the real URL they are trying to direct you to.
