We received another email today which looked like it had been sent from HMRC. How can you tell that it’s not from GOV.UK?
Apart from the fact that the English is not quite right (to have your tax refund creditED to your bank account), if you hover over ’GOV.UK’ you can see that if you clicked on it, you would be sent to ‘usuprint.com’
and if you actually did click on it, your anti-virus software should warn you that the link is dangerous ‘deceptive site ahead’.
And if you hover over ‘Sign in to HMRC online services self assessment’ you will see that the link will take you to ‘nagata-k.net’
If you do accidentally click on a link – don’t enter any personal information, passwords or usernames – and if your computer starts acting strange, turn it off and ring us – advice is free 01948 840102
