A number of people in the East Devon area have recently received phone calls purporting to be from HMRC. Recipients of these phone calls are told that they owe money to HMRC and are threatened with legal action.This is a scam- please do not reply to this message.

If you receive a unexpected phone call from someone claiming to represent HMRC demanding money, put the phone down. If you believe the phone call to be genuine, phone HMRC back on a publicly listed phone number.


If you cannot verify the identity of the person making the call you should not disclose your personal details. You should report these incidents on the Action Fraud website, or you can call them on 0300 123 2040.
