HM Revenue & Customs Rebate Email Scam

Published: 31st October 2009 16:52


Fraudulent Email Scam  

Be aware of not giving out your details in this way. 

An email is being sent informing the recipient of a re-calculation of their tax  as resulted in a refund.

The advice from the genuine HMRC is as follows:

"HMRC do not send notifications of a tax rebate over email or request that you update your security certification.

If you receive an email that doesn't address you by your first name and surname and then asks you to click on a link and/or disclose your details, you may well be revealing your details to a fraudulent website."

The email scam reads as follows:

Tax return for individuals
2008 - 2009 Recalculation of your tax refund

Dear Applicant,

On October 2009, after calculation of your fiscal activity, you are eligible to
receive a tax refund of 762,81 GBP.

Your tax file number (TFN) is: 731948115 (See the tax privacy note in the Taxpayer's
declaration on page 8 of your tax refund).

Notify: We have attached to this confidential message the tax refund "FORM 9288".
The tax refund form is valid only 24 hours from the date of sending, for security reasons.

Please complete the individual tax refund 2009 and allow us 5-9 business days in order to
process it.
