Another hoax email is circulating, this time offering people a tax refund in exchange for credit card details, Inland Revenue says.

A link in the email directs people to a fake webpage with an Inland Revenue logo where people are asked to enter personal details including their credit card details.

Anyone that falls for the scam risks having their credit card details stolen, Inland Revenue group manager for assistance Charles Ronaldson said.

Inland Revenue is asking people to ignore the email and to never click on any links within a suspicious email.

For those who may have already given away their bank details, the advice is to contact their bank or credit card provider.

To report suspicious emails that target Inland Revenue customers, people should email phishing@ird.govt.nz
