A couple of our clients have received a text message from HMRC saying that they owe money or they are due to receive a refund. These are scam texts!
This is the notification that HMRC has on its website:
- Forward suspicious text messages to 60599. Text messages will be charged at your network rate.
- Forward suspicious emails to HMRC’s phishing team: firstname.lastname@example.org
If HMRC needs to contact you about anything confidential they’ll be in touch by phone or post.
HMRC never sends notifications of a tax rebate or asks you to disclose personal or payment information by email or text message.
If you have any concerns about a notifcation that appears to be from HMRC – or one that really is – you’re welcome to get in touch with us to check it.
