The Federation is urging its members to remain vigilant over a new scam that could steal your personal information and leave you seriously out of pocket.

The warning comes after NFRN’S Head of Communications Anne Bingham received an email that claimed to be from the UK Government.

Titled ‘UK Government HMRC Support’, the email instructed its recipients to ‘check their eligibility’ via a web link, for a grant scheme if they are self-employed or a member of a partnership and have been adversely affected by Covid-19.

HMRC, and other official bodies, will never tell you about a tax rebate or penalty, threat arrest, or ask for personal information via email, phone call or text message.

The government has urged people to never download attachments, click on any links, or give out personal information (such as bank details or passwords) if messages don’t appear genuine.
