HMRC phone scams

You’ll never get an email, text message or phone call from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) which:

  • tells you about a tax rebate or penalty
  • asks for your personal or payment information

Reporting suspicious emails, texts or phone calls

You can report something suspicious to HMRC’s phishing team, for example:

  • a text message (forward it to 60599 – you’ll be charged at your network rate)
  • an email
  • details of a phone call asking for personal information or threatening a lawsuit

If you receive a suspicious phone call, you can help HMRC’s investigations by providing:

  • your phone number
  • the caller’s phone number
  • the time and date of the call
  • a brief description of the call

HMRC phishing team’s email address is phishing@hmrc.gov.uk.

Your email address and phone number will be shared with other organisations if that’s necessary to close down the scam.
