HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is now warning young adults to be wary of such phone scams.

In April and May, the government body says, fraudsters target vulnerable people with fake messages to coincide with the time legitimate rebates are being processed.

Because younger adults typically manage their finances via their mobile phones, they can be particularly susceptible to an approach via text message, HMRC warns.

I Call True: I must say that I got one of these, and the website you are diected to is very, very convincing. That coupled with the fact that they are promising £100s in rebates would fool a lot of people into revealing their banking details I am sure.
