Yes, some fraudsters are taking the advantage of Lockdown & Cash Crunch position and started their looting. Request every one please do not trust the mails or messages coming from the unknown source. Government has notified only www.gst.gov.in as the common portal, under the GST Laws.
How scammers are doing this??
They send you message with reference to claiming of refund & confirming your details, for this they ask you to click on link
By clicking on the link they ask for information like Personal Details, Refund Details, and KYC verification.
After providing all information your bank account will be in their hands with all your personal information.
