Fw: Online Update From HM Revenue & Customs

Another scam masquerading as officialdom.  If you live in the UK and receive this, you’ll know who HMRC are.  If you don’t, it won’t mean anything!  By the time this was sent to me, the scam site it linked to had been removed, so I don’t know what information they asked for.  Can’t imagine the scammer was offering to log in and pay your income tax online for you though!
