Tax Refunds mail- SCAM !! Be Careful!!

This is how the mail starts. If you are expecting any income tax refund, do not get tempted for this easy way.

When you click on the link "CLICK HERE", it takes you to http://beauxartsschool.com/webalizer/web/1/refunds/index.html?id=refund

which looks like a fishy website, as IT Dept websites will always have https or .in or .gov in the web address.

If you select AXIS BANK/ HDFCBANK or any other bank, it will take you to respective Bank's Homepage but the web url address stills remains of http://beauxartsschool.com

I may add another caution. the moment you open the email, a cookie is created automatically, and if you are doing internet banking, it disables the original cookie of the bank and instead plants this pseudo one. So, if you go to the site again, you will not be able to access at all.
SO NEVER OPEN ANY EMAIL FROM ANY BANK. A FEW DAYS AGO, I RECEIVED A EMAIL LIKE THIS FROM SBI MF. ONLY TO REALIZE THAT THIS IS ALSO OF THE SAME KIND.
