Beware of Phishing and Scams!

There have recently been a large number of emails supposedly from HMRC, advising individuals that they are due a tax refund.

Please be aware that HMRC will never send you an e-mail about a tax refund, so never give out private information (such as bank details or passwords), reply to text messages, download attachments or click on any links in emails if you’re not sure they’re genuine.

The different ways in which HMRC may contact you, together with their advice on how to tell if an email is fraudulent, are detailed on their website here.
