OFT reiterates HMRC scam warning

Sat, 17 Mar 2018

The Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading is reiterating a warning about scammers claiming to be from HM Revenue & Customs.

Fraudsters are still contacting Manx residents phishing for person information and financial details.

The OFT warns the callers will use a range of scare tactics, including threatening to take their victim to court if they don't settle an outstanding bill.

The organisation is urging locals to warn their friends, family and neighbours about the scam in order to ensure they don't fall for the caller's story.

Anyone who receives such a call is advised to put the phone down.
