Wish to report call from 07537129298. A woman with thick accented voice said it's HMRC and I need to call them about my tax file. When I demanded to know what was there in my tax file. She said it's about "under payment" and I could be in grave trouble if they don't get my call!!
The HM Revenue & Customs would not call consumers to collect taxes. If the department finds an issue, it would send a letter. The calls threatening arrest or legal action and demanding that “taxes” be paid immediately are a scam.
