Quote from Chrestomatics
Because yes the treasury uses live.com email addresses! It came in on a hotmail account so that made it even more believable?



Although it turns out genuine government can be quite as stupid. I once got a call (genuine, it turned out, when I checked up) from the National Insurance people, the guy rang me from a witheld number, refused to identify himeself when I asked his name so I could call him back, demanded I identify myself by asking personal details (gold to a scammer) and getting shirty when I explained why i wouldn't be giving out personal details to a random guy on a witheld number.

But thoughout the call he asked me to provide name, address, D-O-B, NI number, credit card number and security code.

It's no wonder some gullible people get caught out if this is the way government depatments work.
