BEWARE! HMRC-related Phishing Emails

Posted: June 27, 2018

Please be aware that HMRC will never send notifications by email for tax rebates, refunds, or personal or payment information.

Burgess Hodgson would like to make you aware that a large amount of HMRC related phishing or bogus emails are being sent at the moment. These are increasingly sophisticated/realistic and are obviously timed to coincide with the paper statements HMRC are currently sending out in the post.

If you receive one of these fraudulent emails DO NOT open any attachments or links within the email, as they may contain malicious software or direct you to a bogus website, and do not respond. You can notify HMRC by forwarding the message to: phishing@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk. We recommend you delete the email once forwarded.

If you have any queries about your tax payments, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
