Man calls for HMRC to stop sending him cheques, after receiving seven at £291 each

A man has urged HM Revenue & Customs to stop sending him money, after he
incorrectly received more than £2,000 worth of cheques through the post.

Somerset-based Robert Bradfield was sent seven cheques from HMRC, for the
same amount of £291.76.

Bradfield reportedly said the cheques were the beginning of a bureaucratic
nightmare that made him consider moving abroad.

The handyman said that his job situation frequently changed from employed to
self-employed, and he believed this was at the root of the problem.

A spokeswoman for HM Revenue & Customs said: ‘We’re sorry to hear of the
difficulties experienced by this gentleman. We’re unable to discuss individual
cases but the details have been passed to our tax credit office for
investigation.’
