Phishing Fraudsters Target UK Taxpayers

I once predicted that Inland Revenue self-assessment would be an easy phishing target and The Register reports that it's already happening with a bogus email promising a fictitious tax refund of £70. Fortunately, I paid my tax, by debit card, directly with the Revenue this morning but I can see that this particular scam could be alot more succesful than others. It would have been the one that I would have chosen if I had been a fraudster looking to make some easy money.
