Heard about this on the radio a few days ago but was surprised to actually get one myself -



Dear Taxpayer,

*Refund Amount : GBP 443.32

>> Your *Refund Reference Number is: Ref/18400/2014 <<

*************************
Account ID: 782971512
E-mail ID: 661050751
*************************

NOTE: If you've received an Income Tax 'repayment' it will either be following a claim you've made or becouse HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has received new information about your taxable income or entitlement to allowances. The refund may come through your tax code or as a payment and could relate to the current tax year or earlier years.

CLICK HERE to submit your tax refund request

Thank you,
HM Revenue & Customs


HMRC don't send emails like this of course.

Tax refund phishing mails are back are they?

I had a period of getting loads of the ma couple of years ago.

Alos had a spate of getting fake Bank emails. These days it seems to be spam for credit and PPI
