New phishing scam landing in inboxes
SEISS scam dupes traders with fake HMRC email
Taxpayers should be warned of a new phishing scam landing in inboxes as the fourth self-employed income support scheme grant is now open for claims.
To the untrained eye, the official-looking Gov.uk logo, typeface and format is convincing enough to fool a self-employed trader to hand over their details in return for an SEISS grant. But this is a new phishing scam that’s masquerading as an SEISS notification to trip-up desperate traders eagerly awaiting the latest grant.
