Genuine HMRC contact and recognising phishing emails

If you think you’ve received a HMRC related phishing email or text message, you can check it against the examples here:

Examples of HMRC related phishing emails and bogus contact

Always remember that HMRC will never send notifications by email for tax rebates, refunds or personal payment information. Don’t open any attachments or click on any links within the email or text message, as they may contain malicious software or direct you to a bogus website.

It will help our investigations if you report all ‘HMRC related’ phishing emails and bogus text messages to us. Even if you get the same or similar phishing email or text message on multiple occasions, please forward it to email and then delete it.
