Companies House and HMRC Scam Emails

Dec 9, 2013   //   by Ralph   //   Latest News, Scam Warnings

It has come to our attention that a number of very convincing scam emails from both HMRC and Companies House are being circulated by online criminals.

These emails may ask you to click on a link or open an attachment. Doing so may cause your computer to be infected with a virus or lead to your personal information being intercepted.

If you receive an email that purports to be from any institution with whom you have a financial relationship, including HMRC, Companies House or your bank/credit card issuer, DO NOT click on any links or open any attachments.

Should you suspect that the institution may have a need to speak to you about any issue, visit their official website or call the telephone number printed on your statement or correspondence.

You can find Companies House fraud warnings here, and HMRC offer online security advice here.

Neither Companies House nor HMRC will email you asking you to click on links to log into your online accounts.
