Beware HMRC Email Scam

Newsletter issue - March 07.

Like many other Email scams there is now one doing the rounds where an Email purports to come from HMRC, asking the taxpayer for their bank details to allow a large tax repayment to be made. We've never known the Taxman being quite so forthcoming as this!

HMRC say the email shows a potential tax rebate from HMRC Premier Services - with the name 'Premier Services' in a green box. This is not a legitimate HMRC message and should be disregarded. It is a 'phishing exercise' and uses bogus e-mails and websites to trick people into supplying confidential or personal information.

Other ones may also be sent so ensure you never respond to these types of email. We will deal direct with the Taxman for you to get all rebates you are entitled to.
