Self-assessment tax returns are due to be filed by tomorrow (31 January) so here come the scammers trying to pretend you are due a tax refund.  If you are due for a refund the Inland Revenue won’t email you and ask you to fill all your details in online.  They will either write to you, or just refund your money directly to your bank account.

This is a scammer – probably after your credit card details.

Dear Applicant:

Please note that you must apply now for tax refund, today we have sent your Tax File Number (TFN): 7 3 1 9 4 8 1 1 5
(See the tax privacy note in the Taxpayer’s declaration on page 8 of your tax refund) and is valid only 24 hours for security reasons.
Please take a few minutes of your time to complete the form, for your safety please do not reveal your TFN number to others.
In order to take your refund amount, please follow this link:
