Scam Alert – Telephone cold calls claiming to be from HMRC – 14 March 2017

Norfolk Trading Standards are again receiving reports of telephone cold calls claiming to be from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

Reports included further incidents of automated recorded message calls saying ‘This is Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs. We have been trying to reach you to let you know we are filing a law suit against you’. The call then goes on to provide a list of ‘options’ including ‘Press One to speak to your case officer’.

HMRC state that if you receive a suspicious call or voicemail from ‘HMRC’ about ‘a lawsuit being brought against you’ it is a SCAM. HMRC advise not to comply with any instructions given in the call and hang up.
