As you may well be aware ‘phishing’ by fraudsters has once again been circulating due to tax rebates being issued. There has been a surge in fake ‘phishing’ emails being sent since April with more than 46,000 false emails being reported. These emails typically include a link to a cloned replica of the HMRC website whereby it asks for debit or credit cards details. By providing card details it then allows criminal to access your accounts and wipe them clean. Please be aware that HMRC do not send emails or phone. They will only contact you in writing by post. If you do receive any of these emails the HMRC website provides details of what to do.
