Fake HMRC emails

HMRC are warning taxpayers that they are aware of a high number of emails being sent out offering a tax rebate. The warning confirms that HMRC do not email taxpayers advising them of tax rebates or invite them to complete an online form to receive a rebate.

The advice goes on to say that anyone receiving such an email should not visit the website contained within the email or disclose any personal or payment information.
