HMRC warns of fake email threat to the public

Fake email attempts to gain customers' bank details

HM Revenue & Customs has warned of an email scam
that attempts to gain bank details from taxpayers.

The fake email shows a potential tax rebate from ‘HMRC
Premier Services’ on the premise of handing over bank details to receive the
rebate, but is not a legitimate message from the taxman.

HMRC encourages the public to protect themselves by looking at advice
