HMRC Warns on Tax Return Scams

HMRC Warns On Tax Return Scams

t has come to my attention that there has been a number of emails circulated by possible scammers pretending to be from Inland Revenue for Tax Rebate. On the email they will tell you that you are owed money back as you paid too much tax. There is a link you would click on where you will be directed to a page to enter your personal details. I have been told there is a section where they will ask for your card details and the 3 digit security code that’s on the back of your card. Under no circumstances should you give out any personal details and I would advise you to contact the Inland Revenue directly. For more information please visit the link below.
