HMRC Scam Alert
HMRC Scam Alert, is this genuine or not? Almost every day we hear of another scam campaign, either sent via email or on social media, all asking for money. Be it a Nigerian Prince who has £50m to invest or someone claiming that you have gone into debt and owe them money, they are all trying to take advantage of the vulnerable.
Now there is a new scam that is claiming to be from HMRC offering support in paying bills due to COVID. This campaign is via letter and gives you a phone number to call and they will help you with payment options. This number is fake and the letter is not from HMRC.
If you receive a letter from HMRC go to their website and get the contact number from there and call them direct to confirm if the letter and request is genuine or not.
A copy of the type of letter is shown in the image but if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be able to help.
