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
