It’s a scam that’s been around for a while now but it’s still catching people out. You receive an email that suggests you’re entitled to a refund and then directs you to a legitimate looking site. Sometimes fraudsters will use this site to download software to compromise your computer – other times they’ll try to trick you into revealing bank details.
For the record – HMRC have said they will never email taxpayers about tax refunds. If you get an email like this then just delete it.
