I have received three email messages today from a "Ms Lin Homer" allegedly of HMRC (Ms. Lin Homer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The emails contain a document that the sender wants me to open and download.
In the event that you receive one of these under no circumstances open or download the document, it will most likely contain a trojan that is designed to access your pin codes etc stored on your pc.
HMRC do not sent out emails like this.
You have been warned!
For any techies out there who would like to try to trace where this came from, here are the message source details:
