I've received numerous calls from an officer ??? (can never catch the name) saying that I owe HMRC money and that if I don't contact them by pressing/contacting them a warrant will be issued for my arrest. Needless to say I am still waiting...I never click on anything...if in doubt find an official telephone number and ring them.

Yeah, I got this one today. HMRC have a fraud investigation open on me apparently. I hung up, poured a glass of wine and moved on with my day.

A new scam targets people who've ordered a Covid 19 test, asking for bank details to pay for the test, which is free of course. (News this morning.) Sigh.
