Details of Scam Report
An HTML form was attached which I was supposed to fill in to get a tax return. Text of email:
"LOCAL OFFICE No. 152858
TAX CREDIT OFFICER: Alex Cunliffe
COUNCIL TAX REFUND ID NUMBER: 2234000578 REFUND AMOUNT: 350.00 GBP
Unless expressly authorised by us, any further dissemination or distribution of this email or its attachments is prohibited.
I am sending this email to announce: After the last annual calculation of your fiscal activity we have determined that you are eligible to receive a tax refund of 350.00 GBP
The dispute follows miscalculations of Pay As You Earn (PAYE) liabilities last year, which DIRECT GOV originally also denied when reported in this space but later admitted affected millions of people. You can now reclaim your over paid tax now by complete the tax return form attached to this message.
After completing the form, please submit the form by clicking the 'Refund Council Tax Now !' button on form and allow us 5-9 business days in order to process it.
Our head office address can be found on our web site at DIRECT GOV

DIRECT GOV denies profiting from tax refund delays which leading accountants claim are becoming more widespread and make taxpayers wait months to get back what they are due.
