HM Reevnue & Customs


Fraud. I like the bit at the bottom about non-disclosure. Especially, as the e-mail was sent to undisclosed-recipients.

One out of five!

Inland Revenue Tax Refund - You are eligible to receive a tax refund of £281.43
After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have determined that you are eligible to receive a tax refund of £281.43. Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 6-9 days in order to process it.
ATENTION: Insufficient or incorrect information may lenghten the whole process. Usually does not take more than one week from the date you have provided us with your details. In some cases (especially submitted by those without permanent National Insurance Number) this may take considerably longer.
You have 48 hours to complete your tax refund claim. To access the secure form for your tax refund, please click the link below:

This transmission is confidential and must not be used or disclosed by anyone
other than the intended recipient.

Important Notes :-

1. Whatever you do, do not respond to any e-mail like this. If you have given bank details to any fraudster like this, then inform your bank immediately and also make sure that you close the account.

2. If the e-mail mentions a well known e-mail address such as from,, etc., then why not forward the offending e-mail to, etc. Hopefully, they'll remove the e-mail address, which will stop people being sucked in.
