HMRC bank acct verification emails : SCAM or..
client filed vat return online, for a very small refund due
this occurs occasionally [ ie refund ], and funds are remitted direct to the same account for which HMRC draw payment when payments are due
today apparenty have received 2 notifications from firstname.lastname@example.org
to verify the bank account
Seems rather bizarre given that HMRC have recently over the past 2 quarters refunded and drawn funds from the account which has long been setup with them
Any thoughts greatly appreciated
