Fake HMRC emails – be warned!

HM Revenue and Customs has issued a timely reminder about the potential for emails pretending to have been issued by HMRC.

HMRC will never notify a tax rebate by email or text. HMRC do not ask for personal or payment information by email or text.

If you have the slightest doubt that a HMRC email or text is fake, the advice is:
– do not open attachments, they could contain a virus
– do not click on links, they could take you to a fake HMRC site
– do not disclose personal/confidential information
– forward suspicious HMRC text messages to 60599 (charged at your network rate)
– forward suspicious emails to the HMRC phishing team at: phishing@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk
