Hey I just got a tax refund - NOT

Got an email this morning from "HMRC Revenue&Customs"
Quote
Dear <email address>,
We have detected that you have paid too much tax in the past, due to an official error.
Therefore HMRC applied ESC B41 to issue a repayment for tax years which are now
out of date under the strict statute.
<FORM LINK HERE>
Please completely fill out the form above. Accurate information is necessary so that we
may process your request faster.

Now the form redirects to :- "<form action="hxxp://viktornekretnine.com/tmp/ulwnsie.html">" wonder why the gov is using them?  Grin
Been the first real spam message to get through the google servers for a while. Shocked

Just for the removal of all doubt, HMRC will never contact anyone via e-mail, except in certain limited circumstances and only then by prior arrangement.
