After the last annual computations of your financial activity we have determined that you are eligible to get a tax refund of $802.

Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 3-9 days in order to process it.

The delay of a refund can be caused by a variety of reasons.

E.g., sending incorrect records or not meeting a deadline.

To learn the details of your tax refund please open this link.

Best regards,
Tax Refund Department

The malware starts at synergyledlighting.net/main.php?page=6d63cba62f5eb9a0 and then downloads various components (report here). Today synergyledlighting.net is on (Sayfa Net, Turkey). This is one where blocking both the IP and domain is probably a good idea.
