HMRC Scams LPC Announcements, LPC General

Quote from a Police Inspector

“Please look out for your loved ones; if they receive a lot of post, if their phone is often ringing, or if they are secretive about their finances, you can report your suspicions to Action Fraud, telephone 0300 123 2040or ring the police on 101.”

“HMRC would never request tax debts are paid in payment vouchers or gift cards.”

“If someone calls you claiming to be from HMRC saying you are owed a tax refund and asking for information such as credit card or bank details then it’s a scam,” he added.

“If you are suspicious at all of contact, forward the email, text or details of the suspicious call you’ve received claiming to be from HMRC to

Emails to phishing@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk

and texts to 60599.”
