    my husband searched for HMRC contact number and got this number - called it and is now probably going to get an £80 call charge. DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER. HMRC have a free 0300 number to call for any queries

    My wife was scammed by this premium rate 'connection' service for HMRC - we got stung for £50 - I was fuming.

    BUT I GOT A REFUND IN FULL!!

    Here's how - I searched the PSA (premium rate watchdog) and got the contact details of the owners of the number 'Telecoms World Ltd', contacted their support team who gave me contact details of the helpline-uk website. I complained to helpline-uk and got no response, so went back to Telecoms World support - customerservices@telecomsworld.com - and after sending screengrab of my phone bill charges, they agreed to refund me in full. I sent them my bank details and 24 hours later it landed in my bank account. I did some checking on Telecoms World beforehand to make sure they weren't the scammers, but it is a legit company that owns the phone lines that these scammers rent. They don't want the hassle of dealing with the complaints, so make sure you complain if you've been a victim. Good luck!

    Criminal shouldn’t be aloud. Why do companies let this happen.

    Scam website - helplines-uk.com - premium rate phone number connection service at £3.60 per min.

    My wife called this number after clicking a google ad for the HMRC contact number and wasn't aware that 090 was a premium rate phone number charged at £3.60 per minute. We got stung for £50 which is thankfully our spending cap otherwise it could have been much worse.

    If you've also been the victim, please report this number to the PSA (ofcom's premium rate phoneline authority), and send complaints in to Telecoms World Limited who own the phone line.

    It is also worth submitting a complaint to Action Fraud, Wix (who they run the website through) and HMRC (who apparently take action against these companies.

    Good luck!

    My GF was trying to contact HMRC and called this number. £3.45 per minute, on hold for about 12 minutes. and it pains me to say she then tried a further 2 times to get through to HMRC on this number too.... She's very upset and feels a bit silly, however; Life Lessons Learned, me thinks!


    Also; after reading through these comments it seems as though my phone bill is going to hurt this month....
