HMRC scam guidance issued.

New guidance has been issued by HMRC advising¬† how to distinguish bogus e-mails such as phishing scams from genuine HMRC e-mails. The guidance gives an up-to-date record of genuine communication which has recently been issued by HMRC,¬† also a list of warning signs which could indicate that an e-mail is fraudulent. Warning signs include requests for personal information, demands for action to be taken immediately, and e-mails which aren’t addressed by name. The guidance also emphasizes the risk of viruses from e-mails with attachments. Suspected bogus e-mails should be reported to HMRC for further investigation.
