If you think you may have received a HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) related phishing/bogus email, you can check it against the examples shown in this guide.
It will assist our investigations if you report all ‘HMRC related’ phishing emails to HMRC. Even if you receive the same/similar phishing email on multiple occasions, please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org and then delete it. Do not open any attachments or click on any links within the email, as they may contain malicious software.
