The Latest Scam HMRC Email

How ironic, one hour after posting this I received the following in my inbox:




HM Revenue & Customs

New message

Dear Customer ,
We have detected that you have paid too much in the past, due to an official error. Therefore, HMRC applied ESC B41 to issue a repayment to tax years which are now out of date under the strict statute.
Tax refund : £395,61
Please click here to access the secure web form.
Completed return amounts take 1 to 2 days to appear on your account.
From HMRC.
Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. Your copy of the scam email seems to carry a live scam-link. You may want to edit that...

  2. What are HMRC doing to pursue the criminals behind the scam???

  3. Everybody who receives such a phishing email should forward it to and give them a chance to block and detect perpetrators

  4. Sorry should have said
