Scams

Over the years we’ve covered many different scams on the Jones Harris website. Now is a time to be extra vigilant as fraudsters are increasingly taking advantage of the coronavirus situation.

We’re getting a number of queries where clients have had texts or emails purporting to be from HMRC regarding claiming grants. As they are expecting contact, they are being tempted to click on links. Please do not click on any links.

Here is the government guidance:

“If you receive texts, calls or emails claiming to be from HMRC, offering financial help or a tax refund and asking you to click on a link or to give personal information, it is a scam. You should email it to phishing@hmrc.gov.uk and then delete it.

Be Alert to Scams

You should always be on the lookout for scams anyway. Make sure that your anti-virus software is up to date. Check your security processes and systems and make sure that all staff are reminded of the danger. Above all, always think before you click.
