HMRC tax rebate scam

Wednesday 27 April 2016

eCops have sent an email on behalf of Action Fraud (National Fraud Intelligence Bureau) regarding the latest tax rebate scam.

Fraudsters are texting members of the public offering a tax rebate. The text message contains a link to a website and requests to provide personal information, such as bank account information, to claim the non-existent rebate.

Protect Yourself
• Don’t click on web links contained in unsolicited texts or emails
• Never provide your personal information to a third party from an unsolicited communication
• Obtain the genuine number of the organisation being represented and verify the legitimacy of the communication
• HMRC will never use texts or emails or tell you about a potential rebate or ask for personal information
• If you have provided personal information and you are concerned that your identity may be compromised consider Cifas Protection Registration.
