HMRC Phishing Emails – How to stay safe
Customers are advised to lookout for a new bogus email scam, claiming to be from HMRC.
If you receive an email with a subject that reads “You have received new messages from HMRC”, that also has an attachment, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and then delete it.
HMRC will never ask for any personal, or financial details over emails or text messages.
