Email scam supposedly from HMRC - if you have one in your inbox please delete it immediately.

It has been brought to the attention of IT Services that several hundred students have received an email over the last three days, supposedly from HMRC, referring to a 'claim for a tax refund' (or similar).

These emails are a scam. The sender is attempting to gather your personal details and bank account information.

If you have followed the procedure set out in the email or in the attachment you must:

1. Notify your bank immediately

2. Follow the published HMRC guidelines here: https://www.gov.uk/report-suspicious-emails-websites-phishing
