Wiltshire Police have announced that they receiving lots of calls from people who have received letters from someone purporting to be from HMRC with a demand for money. A phone number is provided to call, which will connect to Wiltshire Police so appears genuine.

This is a scam, and people receiving these letters should be aware that Wiltshire Police will only provide the 101 number for members of the public to make contact in these circumstances. Do not call the number in the message nor attempt to make contact with the sender.

If you have received one of these letters there is no need to call Police, but they are encouraging you to report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or online at https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/ as a phishing scam.
