This Is Money reports that HMRC refused to warn people it had launched investigations into the administrators of fraudulent pension schemes registered with it, enabling the scammers to continue to fleece hundreds more victims.
Some lost nest eggs worth more than £200,000 after unwittingly transferring them into the rogue schemes, even after the swindlers running them had been arrested by HMRC officers.
Andy Agathangelou, from the Transparency Task Force which is demanding a public enquiry into the scandal, said the situation would be farcical if it weren't so tragic.
'Some of HMRC's failures are mind boggling and ordinary hard working people have paid the price for their failings by losing everything they have worked and saved for.'
Tax does have to be taxing.
