Boy, am I lucky? HMRC have just emailed me to say that after calculating my annual fiscal activities I am due a tax refund of £364.02. All I have to do is send them my credit card details including the 3 digit number on the back and they will credit the amount direct onto my credit card. I can’t thank the tax man enough. Sadly it is a scam, one of many, which are circulating at the moment.
Common sense should alert anyone receiving this type of email that it is not genuine by answering the following questions:
Once the answers have been taken it is clear that the email is not genuine and should be deleted.
Quite a number of people have been taken in by this scam and lost money as a result.
Perhaps I am becoming cynical but I tend to question anything that is out of the ordinary. Of course there have been the odd occasion when I have been caught out but vigilance is paying dividends.
