HMRC has issued a new fraud warning for us to share with you.
Please be aware that has been a rise in bogus calls and emails, claiming to be from HMRC.
Advice from HMRC is as follows:
Never let yourself be rushed. If someone contacts you saying they’re from HMRC, wanting you to urgently transfer money or give personal information, be on your guard. HMRC will never ring up threatening arrest. Only criminals do that. Tax scams come in many forms. Some threaten immediate arrest for tax evasion, others offer a rebate. Contacts like these should set alarm bells ringing, so take your time and check HMRC scams advice on GOV.UK.
