Fraudulent HMRC e-mails

Fraudulent e-mails are being circulated relating to Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

In all cases the e-mails state that a tax refund has been calculated for an individual and provides a link to follow to process the refund.

Staff are advised to disregard any e-mail they receive of this type and should not follow the links contained within, as these may be malicious in content.

Further guidance issued by HMRC can be found on their website.

An email from "HMRC Online services - test@test.com" is being issued, stating the recipient has 1 new ALERT message, and should log into their Online Account to read the message. The email contains a link to a fraudulent website that requests the disclosure of personal account information and password. The email is not from HMRC. If you have received a copy please forward it to HMRC at phishing@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk.
