Tax Refund Scam

An email I received this morning confirming a nice tax refund is due……

Be warned these emails seem to be doing the round at the moment.  Don’t be fooled into thinking you are eligible for a refund as HMRC will never email you regarding this.  This is a scam and all you will do is provide your bank details and other private information for the scammers to capture.

You have been warned
