HMRC Online Tax Refund Notification. 11

I hope you know that HMRC never issue tax refunds by email.  They send you an official letter.  The link in this email goes to http://www.ialp.org.br/creche/images/hmrc/hmrc/refundportal.htm – which I’m sure you can see is not the real HMRC website.

NEVER click on a link in an official looking email.  ALWAYS enter the web address of the site (HMRC, bank, Paypal etc) directly into your browser.

After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity, we have determined that you are eligible to receive a tax refund of 988.50 GBP. Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 2-3 days in order to process it.

Click Here to submit your tax refund request.

Note : A refund can be delayed a variety of reasons, for example submitting invalid records or applying after deadline.

Best Regards,

HM Revenue & Customs

    A copy of this email arrived in my Hotmail junkbox this morning, I nearly opened it by mistake because I am actually waiting for a payment from the Redundancy Service for a similar figure as mentioned in the email. Thankfully did a Google check first and found this site. So heads up this is still doing the rounds.

    I heard about this scam in the money program on BBC 4 radio. I got a very convincing e-mail today and was enicially very happy then I remembered the show and looked at the web address, which was all wrong for a gov website. Thank you BBC and this website else I probably would of fallen for this scam.

    Hi.

    I got this one below today (May 2011). I have to admit, I was very nearly fooled as it has their Logo at the top saying HM Customs & Excise and it has at the bottom the Direct Gov logo too. When ever I get anything like this I always check the internet first as sites like this one are always looking out for us. Thanks guys and the people that post the comments too.

    I received this email today, they’ve added a nice twist saying this is your last chance to claim your refund. It’s a load of bull, don’t be fooled!
