Submit Your Payment Refund!!! 2

I have copied this scam exactly.   Apparently I’m an “ear applicant”.  I already have two perfectly good ears, I really don’t need any more.

I couldn’t be bothered to look at the attached form, but I’ll bet it asks you for all your credit card details.  If you accidentally fill it in and give the scammers your card details, then contact your bank immediately

ear Applicant:

Following an upgrade of our computer systems and review of our records we have
investigated your payments and latest tax returns over the last five years our
calculations show that you have made over payments of GBP 277.25

Due to the high volume of refunds due you must complete the online application, the
telephone help line is unable to assist with this application. In oder to process
your refund you will need to complete the application form attached to this
email.Your refund may take up to 3 weeks to process please make sure you complete
the form correctly.

NOTE: If you’ve received an Income Tax ‘repayment’ it will either be following a
claim you’ve made or because HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has received new
information about your taxable income or entitlement to allowances. The refund may
come through your tax code or as a payment and could relate to the current tax year
or earlier years.

An Income Tax repayment is a refund of tax that you’ve overpaid. So, if you’ve paid
too much tax for example through your job or pension this year or in previous years
HMRC will send you a repayment. You’ll get the repayment by bank transfer directly
to your credit or debit card.

    I received nearly the same email from Customs@hmrc.gov.uk. Seemed questionable, since why would I pay taxes in London, when I live in the US. Hopefully people will keep their eyes open and not fall for it.

    I too received the above email from test@test.co.uk claiming to be HM Revenue & Customs. My alleged tax overpayment was £1024.21.

    Clever scam – attached pdf has workable links to the HMRC website.
