HMRC Scammers are at it again in 2021

HMRC scammers are preying on victims again in 2021 by calling, emailing and texting UK taxpayers. They are 2021 HMRC scammersimpersonating the HMRC offering refunds, suggesting money is owed and luring people to click a link or share personal information.

This year’s latest scam is claiming you are due tax relief in the name of Covid-19. Reports show these are low amounts (around the £200 mark) and suggest you follow a link to claim.

HMRC would never request your bank details.

These scams continue to mentally and physically affect these vulnerable groups. As always, HMRC is working closely with law enforcement agencies and campaign groups to make sure the public is able to spot scams and to promptly report.

Ifraudf you suspect that you, or a vulnerable or elderly relative, has been the victim of an HMRC scam it should be immediately reported to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or use their online fraud reporting tool.
