How to spot fake emails and texts

Fake 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 do not have examples of fake emails or texts related to all seven agencies to show you. But we do have some examples of previous fake emails from "The Tax Agency" (Skattestyrelsen) and old fake emails texts from "SKAT" as we were called years ago.

You should also be on guard when you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Customs and Tax Administration. Read more below.
