Scam emails

We are aware of a scam that involves an email with a fake HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) heading. The email asks customers to provide banking details so that a repayment can be issued. HMRC Charities will never contact your charity or Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) by email for this type of information, but you may be confused if you have recently submitted a repayment claim. This type of email scam is know as a 'phishing' exercise and it should always be ignored and deleted.

If you have any concerns about anything received supposedly from HMRC Charities please contact our helpline.
