Potential Tax Demand Scam Using The Ots Logo
22nd June 2022
Notification of a potential scam using the Office of Tax Simplification logo.
We have been made aware of people receiving correspondence using the Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) logo and signatures to request payment of ‘tax'. The OTS is not a tax collection agency, and the correspondence is not legitimate.
If you receive any demand for payment of any kind claiming to be from the OTS, you should report it to the National Cyber Security Centre by forwarding the email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
