An e-mail is doing the rounds purporting to be from the Inland Revenue, offering you a rebate and asking for personal and banking details which would allow the criminals to access your bank account. This is a scam: NEVER reveal card or account details to senders of unsolicited e-mails. 

Report it. If you have been scammed, or you think someone has tried to scam you, report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or visit

Get advice. The Citizens Advice Consumer Service 08454 04 05 06 can provide advice and pass details of rogue traders to Trading Standards.
