Scammers are calling people at random using an automated message warning that they are under investigation by HMRC and need to call the number given or “face serious legal consequences”.
This is a scam! Please don’t call the number or give any personal information out. Just hang up.
If you have received a call like this and wish to report it, please contact Action Fraud online at www.actionfraud.police.uk or by calling 0300 123 2040. If the person receiving the call is vulnerable and they have suffered a loss or been otherwise specifically targeted, only then please report it to the Avon and Somerset Police on 101.
