Default Call from HMRC?

Watch out for caller claiming to be from HMRC and threatening legal action if you don't call back. Caller display shows number as 02039620027 but there are probably other numbers they use.

The 'woman ' caller sounds like a robot, and pronounces 'soon' as 'so on'; there are other mispronunciations too.

An obvious SCAM!

If you get a call from HMRC that is not part of an ongoing discussion that you started, it's fake - always.

If I got a call from HMRC, I'd be fairly sure it was a fake as I don't pay income tax! This scam is reported on the Wales Online site:
