I have a strange situation where I filed a set of accounts for a client and whilst I was preparing to submit the tax return the client emailed me to say they had a phone call from HMRC saying that they are being a victm of tax fraud. It was a robot speaking not a real person.
The number being very similar to an HMRC one - 0300 200 3737 but I can not find any record of it being an official HMRC number.
Is it possible that in some way there are bots that pick up when accounts get filed to CoHo and automate phone calls to the numbers associated with them?
Or is it just a scary coincidence? Anybody ever experienced similar?
