Issue flagged on MLS. HMRC scam you need to watch out for. Can't believe some people can be silly enough to fall for something like this  


Issue details:
I've received an email apparently from HMRC saying that following a review of my previous years tax payments I am eligible for a tax refund of £265.84.

When I click on the link to process the refund I am prompted to enter private information and bank account details.

I fear this could be an scamp.
Could you please confirm whether the email received is a genuine one & I am actually entitled to the above tax refund.

Thanks & Kind Regards

Thanks, Rachael Kennedy

Many of the scams! Different people are pretending to be HMRC, so good to watch out for these!

Hi all

HMRC do not email their "Customers" about confidential tax issues or ask for personal details via email.

Somtimes there are other giveaways but the best approach is always to avoid clicking on any links and delete.

Kind regards

Sort of a scam. Eventually person's identity will be jeopardised. Avoid any sort of compliance with their reuqests.
