    Default Public Service Announcement - Who's watching you?

    HMRC and scammy, dodgy 'solutions' providers - that's who!

    Sharks from both sides of the fence are circling people, sharks who are trying to find an 'in' to get past your defences and grab your money.

    Take care who you accept PM's from - don't be too open exchanging information until you've checked them out and they've given you real life references.

    This is the end of the public service announcement.

    can I just add that there's a very good reason Cojak made this thread. It really is worth being paranoid over this. On the plus side, nobody would watch if they weren't worried about something.

    I will also add that we are now aware of two firms who are selling for substantial sums, bits of paper saying that a loan no longer exists or that a loan has been written off and claiming that HMRC will require these as "proof".

    This is incorrect.

    HMRC does not require third party corroboration of a loan write off.

    A statement from a trustee that a loan has been written off in the past, is likely to be rejected by HMRC or at least be subject to a long and expensive enquiry.

    DO NOT PAY THESE PEOPLE.
