HMRC Scam


If you receive a pre-recorded message from telephone number 01227708977 (and also 01928 628376) saying it is from HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) this is totally false.
The message suggests that you are in arrears and goes on to say there is a Warrant for your arrest unless you reply by pressing 1 to answer.
DO NOT PRESS 1 AS THIS WILL CONNECT YOU TO A PREMIUM RATE LINE. DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS TYPE OF CALL.
HMRC will NEVER contact you in this manner.
Never supply any personal information over the phone. If you have any doubts as to the identity of a caller hang up and contact the organisation through their official site to check. #beatfraud
