Appearances can be deceptive, wouldn’t you agree?
On the one hand, the taxman is not always as bad as some might think. Recently, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has been issuing warnings about email scams. It seems that some bad guys have been sending emails that purport to come from HMRC and which tell you about tax rebates.
The real purpose of the emails is to gain access to your credit card or bank details. So delete any such email you receive and do not click the links or complete the forms. HMRC say they would never inform us about tax rebates by email.
