I must be very lucky as last week I got three tax refunds (due to myself) on the same day, ranging from just over £300 to over £1,000.
Obviously these were false.
A lot of very well crafted emails – sometimes with the HMRC logo – are being sent. Don’t be taken in.
HMRC will not contact you by email but any clients who are in doubt please call me before you divulge personal information.
Be safe rather then sorry.
