    Similar to other comments, but received my call via landline on a Friday evening having missed the call to my, mobile, at about 7pm just about to start my daughters birthday weekend celebrations, which absolutely ruined the entire weekend for me stressing over the demand that I owe £5,000 and how was I intending to pay. I said if they had any queries regarding my alleged overpayment they need to put it in writing and I would take it to my solicitor and was told that it wasn't possible to put it in in writing and that she didn't have the details to hand, the information was being dealt with by somebody else and that I should call back on Monday. My family have told me its a scam but I'm worried out of my mind that I'm going to be taken to court. I'm a full time working professional woman with 2 grown up daughters, I'm responsible for my elderly 92 year old widowed mother, I'm a cancer survivor, I work ridiculously hard, pay my taxes and have never claimed anything from the state. Do these scammers have no pride or conscience. They sounded very genuine, I'm scared to pick up the phone in case its them again. :-(

    Scam. Rang the website number and rang the number on another phone and played it to the chap at HMRC. This number is NOT a recognised number by HMRC and has been reported.

    These scammers have spoofed a legit HMRC phone number which shows up on your caller display, don't be fooled though. They have tried it with me twice now. A man who sounds pak*stani called us and told us his name is Christopher Robinson and we have to pay £9,000 immediately over the phone due to overpayments of tax credit. We have never had any tax credit. Told him to 'do one'.

    If you want to call the 03002003809 number back to check if it's genuine, make sure you leave it a good 10 minutes after putting phone down and preferably use a different phone as the scammers tie up the line and wait for you to call it back so that it seems genuine.

    Had 2 calls now. The first demanding money be paid over the phone immediately or court action will be taken (this was from a different number). The second was from this number and again wanted to speak to my husband regarding money 'owed'. This number is actually listed as a genuine HMRC Tax Credit phone line on their website, however, I have been informed that they can 'spoof numbers' now and basically can make a legitimate number appear on your caller display, so beware. I told them that I know they are scammers and if they're not then they should have our accountants contact details on file and to contact him directly.

    This a bone fide, actual HMRC phone number for old tax credits overpayments.

    I called this number after receiving a message to contact them and experienced a very hard mannered 'advisor'. It was clear that I MUST give them my personal details before they would go any further with MY/THEIR enquiry. At no point would she discuss the reason or even explain just how they got my phone number. I reluctantly gave some if the information that she insisted on but decided not to complete this so called urgent enquiry. I called the 'official' HMRC number instead and went through the security questions with them (after holding for 45 minutes for an advisor) and they had absolutely no idea as to why I have been contacted. I asked if the phone number that I had been asked to call was recognisable to them and they said 'NO, it looked similar to the ones they used but not enough to recognise'. I asked them to let me know if they had written to me recently, as this was the only question that the 'rogue' HMRC had put out there, "you've not answered recent correspondence we have requested by letter". However, it appears I owe nothing and NO correspondence has been sent to me recently, leaving unanswered questions from myself. Therefore, IGNORE THIS NUMBER and call the HMRC official number if you have ANY doubts!

    Sadly for us this number is not a scam despite us thinking it was. I phoned the tax credits payment number 0300 200 3804 listed on their website and they confirmed the 3809 number was genuine. We apparently owe £1800 in overpayment of tax credits from over 3 years ago. During that time we had received no chasing letters in connection with this as apparently according to HMRC they had a backlog. Appalling, very distressing and not what you expect from a Government organisation. We couldn't run our business like that suddenly asking our customers for an unknown debt from 3 years ago!

    I had a call the day before yesterday while away from home from this number (around 2:00 pm and lasted 2 mins), they said they were from HMRC asked for my full name. I said my name and then refused to answer any other questions as I was not happy giving this information over the phone. I asked what it was in connection with and they would no tell me before they went through security questions. So I said that they may phone me the day after to see as I would be at home and if it was legit; they say that they could not guarantee they could call but should try, what is this a game? Then they said it was important that I called them. However, if this is legit, why not send me a letter instead when is the very same government who advises not to give our personal details over the phone.
    I never received a call back.
    How can I find out if the number is legitimate? Since I don't wish to know that they have sent me a letter and I missed it or so.

    Scam - I got a call from this no. today, wanted personal info, but I refused. I phoned HMRC on one of the numbers from the HMRC website, and the guy I (eventually) got through to confirmed that it is not an HMRC number and there was no record on my account that anyone from HMRC had tried to contact me.

    I googled a HM Revenue & customs no and the letter with the above tel number ending 3809 received was legit. Still good advice not to give details over the phone though.

    Had a call today from this number, said they were from HMRC asked for my full name, national insurance number, full address, my childrens full names and my bank details. I said my name and then refused to answer any other questions as I said I was not happy giving this information over the phone. I asked what it was in connection with and they said my tax credits. I then said I dont get tax credits. Then they said it was important I gave all the information. I said no ahain and asked if they could write. They said no as it was a call centre and gavone the above numbet for me to call. I would not get involved with giving out information to this number and phone your local tax office for further advice.

    According to a letter I received, this is supposed to be the number to call about HMRC debt collection.
    I just checked my phone bill after calling them to sort out why they were suddenly requesting payment for a debt apparently incurred in 2007 (although why they are only now contacting me, 6 years later, is anybody's guess).

    Calling the number cost me £1.06 for a few minutes on hold and I didn't get through to anybody.
    Fortunately I was late to work and had to hang up, else who knows how much they would have made from me waiting to speak to someone.

    My advice: Don't call this number, contact HMRC on one of their 0800 numbers at local rates instead and get someone to call you back.

    Answering machine message. Claiming to be from HMRC. Asked to phone this number back before 8pm tomorrow with my national insurance number. Obviously a scam. Now reported to the police,which I would advise everyone to do, to help stop these people. NEVER give out personal information to a cold caller!
