Since 2018, every last year we have been sending the tax refund money to every Greek citizen.
Although your tax refund for this year 2022 has been calculated and is ready to be transferred to your online bank account.
What should I do ?
Open your account by clicking on the "redeem" button and remember to update your details once logged in.
We will give you 48 hours to request your refund or we will cancel it.
Sincerely.
Sincerely.

Redeem now

Fairly obviously a scam but some might be tempted to click the blue button, whether they can read the text or not. Pretty certainly it will seek to collect your personal details and quite possibly install malicious software. A search on the 'from' address, support@franrichsen.co doesn't bring any results but franrichsen.com is flagged as malicious at virus total and by Bitdefender Traffic Light.
