HMRC Scam – Telephone scam
There is currently a telephone scam where a recorded message is left, allegedly from HMRC, stating that HMRC are bringing a lawsuit against the individual and is going to sue them. The recipient is asked to phone 0161 8508494 and press “1” to speak to the officer dealing with the case. This scam is becoming widely reported and seems to be targeting older people. Individuals should not respond to the message.
if you are not expecting the call – do not respond. if HMRC want to correspond with you they will write formally to you.
