Be Aware:

  1. HMRC will never use texts to advise of  a tax rebate or penalty.
     

  2. HMRC will never or ask for payment using iTunes gift card voucher codes or similar.
     

  3. Telephone numbers and text messages can easily be spoofed. You should never trust the number you see on your telephone’s display.
     

  4. If you receive a suspicious cold call, end it immediately.
