JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.

Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK and Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you.

You were contacted by a scammer - a bogus call which is quite common. You should report this to HMRC via their email address set up for this at : [email protected]

If you have the facility to block that caller again, please do so - no need to speak to them again. The following site gives you further details of this problem (which is becoming more of a problem unfortunately) :
