Yep, never follow any links in emails. Always go to websites yourself and watch the address in the bar is the one you intended.
Let's be careful out there !

A lot of these scams look very professional with the official looking logo etc.
But, where they always fall down is, they put Dear customer.

A  legitimate e-mail will always put your name .
And as for those saying you  have a tax rebate,  the  inland revenue will never e-mail you.
They always write to you.

I wonder how they decide who to send them to - so far I haven't had one.
