Dedicated to the taxpayers of Britain, and the employees of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), who have to endure the monumental shambles that is HMRC.

Spam Phishing

Yesterday I received an avalanche (well six actually) of spam emails purportedly from HMRC telling me that I have paid too much tax in the past, and inviting me to complete an attached from to reclaim the money.

Suffice to say that these emails are rather pathetic attempts to phish for my bank details and other personal information. They do not even use my name in the body of the mail.

HMRC do not communicate with taxpayers in this manner. In the event that you receive any such email, do not open the form and do not respond to it.

Here is one of the six that I received yesterday, they are all identical:

Dear ,
We have detected that you have paid too much tax in the past, due to an official error.
Therefore HMRC applied ESC B41 to issue a repayment for tax years which are now
out of date under the strict statute.
Please completely fill out the form above. Accurate information is necessary so that we
may process your request faster.
