Tax Refund Notification

After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity, we have determined that you

are eligible to receive a tax refund of 468.50 GBP

As I have only been back in the Uk for a few months this is cr@p.

I get a fair few similar phishing emails from NZ too and they are extremely plausible!!

yeah, spam filter catches a few most days, and occasionally something gets through.

Funnily enough I got an unexpected £1500 from the taxman a few weeks ago. No email, not even a letter, just a credit in my bank account! Nor anything to do with my tax return for 2009/10, for which I got the rebate back in May.

me too, actually a fair bit more than that too. think i know what it is for but it was 2-3 weeks ago, straight into my account, and the letter from HMRC telling me about it only came today. as an aside, another letter from HMRC (same envelope syle) came at same time addressed to a completely different address, i'll prob be honest and stick it back in the post box, but maybe interesting to know what some random is getting paid in tax.....royal mail at its finest, prob was the end of his round and he couldn't be ars*d delivering it...

Report dodgy stuff there

Yawn.

Government showing an interest, about fifteen years behind both the spammers and anti-spammers. Fortunately the latter actually do something.

(The last time I turned off spam filtering to my email was in IIRC 2001, and that got me over 4000 spam messages per day for the week or so before I re-enabled it. And it wasn't even fully disabled: I still had known spam-factory IPs blocked at the firewall).
