All tax refund emails are fake

According to the government, “HMRC will never send notifications by email about tax rebates or refunds.”  If you receive an email claiming to offer a tax refund, it is fake.

If you think you might have given away your details to this scam, please take the following action immediately:

  • If you gave away your bank details, you should contact your bank
  • If you entered your Sussex password, please change it using Sussex Direct

Mimecast stops many malicious emails from reaching your inbox, but no system can block everything. Stay safe online: check the top 10 security tips on the ITS website.
