HMRC, officially known as Herjesti’s Revenue and Customs, is a well-known and well-known organization that may also give letters to many people on the occasion. This helps the British in particular to deal with the need for taxes throughout the year and other government payments. However, scammers are capitalizing on the official name of HMRC to snatch people to share sensitive information.
“To prove these to be true, you go to the official HMRC site and they ask you to check your number.
“It shows up as an HMRC number – see for yourself.”
Another said: “People who like telephone need to be 61 years old now to pass their card details on the phone! Total scandal!”
And a third said: “Lockdown seems to have triggered scammers.
“There were already three scandal calls, one from HMRC – worse because the weaker ones are going to fall for the threat.
“Please, don’t believe anything when you get an unexpected phone call, especially on your landline.”
HMRC Customer Support provided more information in response to the UK’s report on the scandal.
They wrote: “Hi. If HMRC calls you, this is the call you expected.
“HMRC does not threaten to take legal action by phone. This is probably a phishing scam. If you can, report it to our security teams.
Revenue Creditly has issued a guide to help the British figure out what to look for and whether the letter they have received is a scam.
The British could face scandals if the message they receive is unexpected, threatening, asking for money transfer, or asking for their personal details.
Its website reads: “You can be sure that HMRC will only ask you about debt claims or payments that you already know about.
“HMRC will not leave any voicemail threatening to take legal action and will never give a reason for making a call in a voice message.”
Those who have already shared personal details are being encouraged to reach out to the HMRC security team immediately.
This can be done via the security.coxtcon custhmrc.gov.uk email address.
A brief description of what the British have revealed should be included, for example name or address, but personal details should not be given in the email.
Those who have suffered financial losses as a result of scandals should also report this action fraud.
