Beware of any email claiming to be about  under declared earnings.

This was restricted to claiming to be sent by the US Inland Revenue Service.

However this is now being also sent  claiming to come from the UK  Inland Revenue as well.

Do not blindly click on the links.

delete and ignore them is my advice.

Bjantiques: Hi Cheryl, my bad i did mess up the name I should have said Internal for the USA not Inland. A
The way things change on a daily basis in the scam game there very well could have been emails with "Inland Revenue Service" making the rounds!

Hi Cheryl,
my bad i did mess up the name I should have said Internal for the USA not Inland. Apologies on that .

Despite my slight error your words are very true.

Inland Revenue Service???? That's a trigger right there there is no Inland Revenue Service in the US. However we do have an Internal Revenue service and Comptroller of the Treasury both of which are used in Phishing scams. No US governmental office corresponds with the public via e-mail. They send hard copy letters through the US postal Service.

But beware that letters sent by these Government offices out of the blue are also phishing scams 99% of the time. Look up the phone number of the particular government office and call them to verify the authenticity of that letter before taking any action on a letter you get in the mail.
