This post is about a scam pretending to come from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. Don’t fall for it.
Don’t give your debit or credit card details and don’t be left feeling foolish and deflated at Christmas:
This is what was sent:
The email address shows up as: HM R&C …. which is a clue …. and below is who really sent it…….
“HMRC Lodgement Number : H85714241

This message was sent to (fill in some suckers details) and intended for the rightful owner of this account exclusively.
