Scams warning from HMRCApril 21, 2021 // No Comments
SAIF Members are reminded that scam phone calls, emails and texts supposedly from Her Majesty’s Revenues & Collections are increasing. If someone contacts you claiming to be from HMRC saying that you owe tax and face arrest, are due a tax refund, that your National Insurance number has been compromised, or asking you to transfer money, or for bank or other personal details, it might be a scam.
Search GOV.UK for our ‘scams checklist’ and to find out how to report tax scams. You can also access the National Cyber Security Centre’s new guide on how to stay secure online and protect yourself or your business against cybercrime by searching ‘Cyber Aware’.
If you suspect fraud, please report it using HMRC’s online form. Go to GOV.UK and search ‘Report fraud to HMRC’ for more information.
