Just a heads up about yet another email scam purporting to come from HMRC.
The following email arrived in my mailbox this morning, and had a file attached that the scammer wanted me to download.
Under no circumstances open/download any files, as they most likely contain viruses/trojans.
HMRC never contact people in this manner, all such emails are fakes.
