Money Box: tax rebate con

If you receive an e-mail from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) offering a tax rebate, the advice is to ignore it.

HMRC has warned that this latest wave of bogus e-mails is from scammers, hoping to extract money from consumers.

Clare Merrills from HMRC and 'phishing' expert Fraser Howard from SophosLabs discussed the issue with Money Box.

This item was first broadcast on Radio 4's Money Box on Saturday, 26 September 2009.
