Gone phishing

with No Comments

HMRC are warning that a large scale scam email is at large:

“Customers are strongly advised to lookout for a new phishing scam. If you get an email with the subject, “Your 2016 Tax Report”, with an attachment, do not open it.

Please forward it to phishing@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk and then delete it.

For more advice, please visit GOV.‌UK and search “phishing”.”

We would add that almost any email claiming to be from HMRC or a bank that requires you to click on a link, enter details or open an attachment should be treated as highly suspicious.
