HMRC updates guidance on recognising phishing emails

The government has updated its official guidance on recognising genuine HMRC contact and identifying phishing emails.

Phishing is the fraudulent act of emailing a person to get their personal or financial information. These emails often include a link to a bogus website encouraging you to enter your personal details.Several scams have been devised in recent years by cyber criminals presenting their communications under the HMRC’s identity.

HMRC’s guidance explains how to recognise genuine contact from HMRC, and how to tell when an email or text message is phishing or bogus. Please share this amongst your networks to increase awareness and prevent individuals, charities and businesses falling victim to phishing scams.
