Press Release from HM Revenue and Customs
"Fraud Alert – Bogus Inland Revenue Forms P86"
We have become aware of a letter purporting to be from the Inland Revenue (which integrated with Customs and Excise on 18 April 2005 to form Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) which asks for personal information from taxpayers employed outside the UK.
The letter is accompanied by a bogus copy of form P86 and asks for personal bank account details.
These documents have not been issued by the Inland Revenue (HMRC). The letter is signed by a Fiona Delaney.
The Inland Revenue logo, telephone and fax numbers and the address on the letterhead are all false.
Employers are urged to advise their overseas employees to ignore such letters and to report the incident to the Police.”
