Phishing Scam Impersonation Scam
The caller claimed to be from IRAS. 'Michael' claimed he was calling from IRAS about my unpaid tax. He claimed all my documents and accounts had been placed on hold until my tax account was paid. I cleared my tax bill in July. He wanted details how I paid it and from which bank. I told him I paid from my account at HSBC to IRAS. At that time he asked for my log on details at HSBC. I refused to give the details and he threatened me about my documents and bank accounts remaining on hold at which time I repeated I would not give my personal banking details.

He then hung up.
