I have just deleted an e-mail supposedly from pay pal, wanting me to log on to sort out a problem with my account, it must have been a scam, I do not have a pay pal account.
Please take great care if you get this email.

I get a refund from HMRC scam most weeks.One of the first test is if the e-mail starts with "Dear User" or "Dear sir/madam" then its a scam.

For instance I got this


"Dear Sir | Madam

We have recently noticed some discrepancies in your tax return for the previous
year. You are now due some refunds. We do not hold your payment details on
record.Please press here to provide us with your settlement method
Kindly allow 8-10 working days for refund to appear on your account.

You have 10 working days from the receipt of this email to action the request.


Sincerely
Customer Support
HMRC"

Never ever press where it says "Press here"
