Fake email Re: Income tax, 16 December 2019

You may receive a fake email today with the subject line Re: Income Tax

The email is a clever copy of a genuine HMRC email, but the link leads to a phishing website designed to look like the HMRC site. If you enter any information on this website, you are giving away your information to criminals. We have blocked the site, so if you’re connected to the Sussex network you won’t be able to visit it.

Please be very careful to check the address of links in emails before you follow them.

Mimecast rewrites links in emails by adding https://protect-eu.mimecast.com followed by some letters and numbers. However, the part after domain= will show the original URL of your link

Check the Mimecast page on the ITS website for details.
