    Default UK income tax scam or genuine.. HELP

    I just got this email into my yahoo junk folder... i've not worked in the UK for nearly 4 years and think this looks dodgy...anyone had anything similar ..?

    Also theres an attachment form (it is headed HM Customs) thats asking for current address and bank/card details so it can be paid straight to either

    To be honest im useless with these things

    Also i though rebates etc could be paid either by a cheque/Giro or electronically , the attachment only gives you the Credit or Debit card option.

    Does look genuine though the attachment?

    All the links look fine and it's properly headed etc

    Pretty sure that HMRC only ever reimburse via Cheque, so I think it sounds dodgy fella.

    they would send you a letter so i would say dodgy... I have never had an email from them, but have had alot of dodgy ones.... you just need to ask yourself if you gave them your email and if so when as you could just google the legit site and login with your info.... if you don't have an account already then its 100% fake mate especially due to the fact they did not add your full name to it or any name screems scam (because a scammer doesn't have it)

    Dude, my gmail inbox is awash with these bastards. It's in the spam box for a reason dude.

    Think logically. Were you self employed when you were in the UK? Even if you were, did you pay so much tax more than you should have done? Would you even have given your email address to HMRC?

    Can I have your email address....it turns out you've won the Spanish lottery, and just need to pay me a £2,000 registration fee in order to claim your £5,000,000 prize.

    Load of shite. HM Revenue & Customs don't send emails.

    Print it, wipe your arse with it, and flush.
