HMRC phishing emails warning
14 May, 2019
HMRC continues to warn of the ever-present problem of fraudulent phishing emails. The emails typically look to obtain taxpayers personal and or financial information such as passwords, credit card or bank account details. The phishing emails often include a link to a bogus website encouraging the recipient to enter their personal details.
As with other fraudulent emails, these are not genuine HMRC messages and should be disregarded. HMRC never sends notifications by email about tax rebates or refunds.
