Be scam aware

HMRC has reaffirmed that they will never contact a taxpayer out of the blue to ask for their PIN, password or bank details.

New defensive controls have been deployed by HMRC to stop fraudsters spoofing its most recognisable helpline numbers. The new controls, created by Ofcom and the telecommunications industry will prevent the spoofing and  HMRC is the first Government Department to use this. They began using them in April and scam reports are already down 25%.

Last year alone HMRC received more than 100,000 phone scam reports.

Taxpayers are advised to forward details of suspicious calls to email hidden; JavaScript is required or call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
