How to spot fake emails and texts

Fake and fradulent emails and texts may look like they are sent by one of the seven agencies of the Danish Customs and Tax Administration (Skatteforvaltningen). We recommend that you only click on links in emails and texts when you are sure that the sender is legitimate.

We automatically refund overpaid tax to your NemKonto and you don't have to give us your credit card details.
We never state specific amounts in emails or text messages.
We never aks for your bank or payment information.

On this page you can see examples of fake email and text messages from senders pretending to be "Skattestyrelsen", "Skat.dk" and "SKAT", but they are fake.

You should also be on guard if you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Tax Agency (Skattestyrelsen) or the Customs and Tax Administration (Skatteforvaltningen). Please read more below.
