Scam - HMRC call asking to call back I blocked the number after googling and reading all posts
I was called at; 12.49 20/09/2018 telling me they were from HMRC that is was time sensitive and I had to ring a number immediately or legal proceedings would start.
They called to say I owe tax but if I pay £300 legal fees they will wipe this off

automated message saying it's HMRC calling
Automated spam call claiming to be HMRC
Missed call. I rang back and they said it was HM Revenue and Customs. I said I had a missed a call from them and they asked for my name. I said how can I guarantee it's HMRC, it seems unlikely to get through so quickly and it didn't sound legitimate. They said "you can just disconnect your line if you don't believe it" so I did.
