If anyone receives a telephone call or has a message left on their voicemail claiming to be HMRC "filing a law suit under your name" or "filing a law suit against you" and instructing you to press button one to speak to your case officer - just be warned it is a scam. I had such a message left on Friday while I was out and very quick investigations showed it not to be genuine, so be warned and warn others. I am not sure at what point someone is hoping to make money out of this, but that apparently is the aim. The number on my phone was: 0161 8504214 but there are a lot of other numbers used.

The advice is as follows: “If you receive a call of this type, we advise that you hang up immediately and report it on 101 using another phone. You can also report it to Action Fraud via their website or on 0300 123 2040. “If you have elderly friends or relatives who may be vulnerable to this scam, please make them aware.”
