TAX REFUND ID NUMBER: 381716209 54

The scammer who wrote this scam clearly has skills which could be put to much better use. The form that is attached to this scam gets sent to a domain that, according to Whois, has been registered by someone in Ireland. However, the billing address for it is in America, as is the IP address from which this email was sent.

This certainly doesn’t come from HMRC and you aren’t due a tax refund. If you really are expecting a tax refund, telephone your local branch of the Inland Revenue. The Inland Revenue DON’T send you a random email, without your name etc. If you are due for a refund, they write to you – a real, old fashioned letter in a real, old fashioned envelope.

If you make the mistake of filling in this form, contact your bank IMMEDIATELY so the scammer can’t empty your bank account.

    The body of the mail is similar to previous ones reported and the e.mail address + relatively modest ‘refund’ might trick some people into thinking this is not a scam. Clearly there are variations on this scam and it’s a time of year when people might hope to be receiving a refund.

    Just got the email from Helen Hughes and replied to it to it before I discovered this site. Didnt send any personal details but now worried they’ll be able to access stuff from my computer …

    Hi all, just received the scam email from Helen Hughes today, I guess I can just say, do not ever trust such email, cause HMRC never ever sends email, they have charged help line. lol, that people must be completely naive if they think we will provide card details and even insert amount to be credited, pfff, HMRC never take card details, only sort code and account number. Lol, good luck and thanks for this site, it can prevent family tragedy…

    Thank for alerting us about this scam. Any unsuspecting person would fall a victim. It took me some mintues to decide on this email because it was perfectly done.
    I had to key in the local tax office id in google to bring me to this website to know that i had fallen a victim to scammers. I am advicing every one to check on emails he or she is not sure of receiving to expose such scammers.

    Heading:

    Just received this email today 3/10/10. Notice the grammer ( you ) instead of ‘your’. I didn’t even open this email up to see how stupid it sounded.

    My situation is exactly the same as Mr Easton’s. I too did a search on the ID number which brought me to this site. Thank you, Keepsafe! 🙂

    Just for reference this is what was put to me in my e-mail:

    Just got this one but with a different name (Neil Robinson) and a different amount of refund (£344.79). Have to admit, I am due money so I checked it out first and found this as the top link. For information, the ID number was the same, as was Preston – 3819. I’ve never dealt with Preston, so I searched for ‘tax office ID 3819’ which brought me here. Thanks, keepsafe! 🙂
