The latest scam is fraudsters sending text messages to members of the public claiming to be HMRC. In these messages, they make false claims that the individual is due a tax rebate and should click a link to claim the refund. These types of link harvest personal information or spread malware and will lead to the theft of people’s personal savings or identify fraud. It is so much easier to fall for these types of scam as texts can appear legitimate. Please be aware that HMRC will NEVER contact a customer who is due a tax refund by text message or email.

In most cases, if it seems too good to be true it probably is! So please remain vigilant and if you are unsure of anything you receive from HMRC please contact a member of the team at Redwood Wills & Trusts on 01489 877 547. You can check how to spot bogus HMRC correspondence; examples can be found on the .gov.uk website
