HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) warning of social media scams

HMRC is warning that they are aware of direct messages sent to taxpayers through social media.

A recent scam was identified on X (formerly Twitter) offering a tax refund.

These messages are not from genuine HMRC social media accounts and are a scam. HMRC point out that they never use social media to:

·         offer a tax rebate

·         request personal or financial information

If you cannot verify the identity of a social media account, HMRC request that you send the details by email to: and ignore it.
