HMRC is aware of COVID-19 Coronavirus SMS scams telling contractors they can claim a ‘goodwill payment’ or claim a tax refund to help protect themselves from the Corona outbreak.
This is an example of the scam wording:
‘As Part of the NHS promise to battle the COV-19 virus, HMRC has issued a payment of £258 as a goodwill payment. Follow link to apply’.
HMRC is also aware of a phishing campaign telling contractors they can claim a tax refund to help protect themselves from the Coronavirus outbreak.
