A new telephone scam where bogus callers pose as HMRC leaving threatening messages to call back or face the consequences.
HMRC takes security very seriously and this is a further reminder that you need to be alert. If you cannot verify the identity of the person making the call you should not disclose your personal details or call them back.
You should report these incidents on the Action Fraud website or you can call them on 0300 123 2040 (Please note this number will be charged at your normal network rate). They are open Monday to Friday 09:00 – 18:00.
