Anti Money Laundering Supervision

Email from HMRC ECS (Economic Crime Supervision) requiring me to update my account

Didn't find your answer?

I am a member of the ICAEW and was fairly certain that they are my supervising body. Why am I therefore getting a nudge email from HMRC? Is this another HMRC cock-up? Anyone else had a similar email - I can't be the only one.

Just had another email :

Update from HMRC

Dear customer,
We're sorry that we sent you an email about urgent Anti Money Laundering Supervision earlier today. We sent this by mistake, there is no need to take any action, please delete that email.
We are sorry for any confusion or concern that this may have caused.
Yours faithfully

Don't know whether to laugh or cry! HMRC really do take the cake!!

The AW journalists should capitalise on this and seek an interview with Jim Harra both on this and the reminders issue.
