We have been tracking a new email scam which appears to emanate from HM Revenue & Customs. The email suggests that the recipient is due a tax refund and asks them to download a form that is attached to the email. The body of the email is similar to that shown below.
Please do not respond to this email in any way and do not download the form or provide any personal information. HMRC will never use this method to notify you of tax returns and although the sender address looks genuine it has been spoofed. If you have any concerns or would like to discuss this further please contact us.
