SIDMOUTH residents are again being warned to watch out for scam emails.

As previously reported in the Herald, a number of people in the area have received emails claiming to be from HM Revenue and Customs.

The latest incident of this type happened on Monday.

The email stated there was unreported or underreported income and the person should click on a link to review her tax statement.

HM Revenue and Customs would like to clarify that it does not send out emails.
