Does anyone disagree with me that a letter sent by HMRC to taxpayers refusing repayment of overpaid tax, as well as payment of any future SEISS and a demand for repayment of SEISS previously paid, unless they send a copy bank statement, a copy of their passport, a copy of their photographic driving licence and a recent utility bill is an invitation to fraudsters to commit identity fraud, especially when the information is to be addressed to a specific postcode that amounts almost to an advert that the letter includes this information, as well as the taxpayer's UTR and National Insurance number. I was convinced that this was a scam until we managed to get through to the agents dedicated line after three days and being cut off several times due to them "not being able to take your call at present. Goodbye!"
