Fake HMRC emails surge

HMRC have warned to expect an increase in ‘phishing’ emails in the run up to tax credits being renewed. Typically the scam will indicate a tax refund is due before requesting credit or debit card details. HMRC have confirmed they only ever contact customers who are due a tax refund by post. If you receive such an email we’d advise you to delete it and if still in doubt – ask us.
