Re: HM Revenue & Customs Refund

Why would anyone think this is other than a scam and waste any time on it other than to delete it Undecided

Pretty sure that HMRC would use the conventional £ rather than GBP

Re: HM Revenue & Customs Refund

Just to confirm (as I have done here before) that HMRC will never contact you by e-mail for any reason except by prior arrangement and in quite limited circumstances.
Our call centres get people phoning in reporting these scams all the time.
