Here is where they try to steal money. No legitimate government agency will ask for a payment via Money Gram or western Union.

The applicable fee
For applications made on this form as a Tier 2 migrant there is a fee of £650.40GBP. Method of Payment:
The only accepted means of payment is through MoneyGram which is to be paid to the office of the
UK Border Agency through the office of Her Majesty Revenue & Customs At 100 Parliament Street, Westminster, London. Please kindly check Section 1 – A5 for payment details. (This means of payment is temporary).
Credit Cards & Bank-to Bank Transfers (NOT ACCEPTABLE)
We do not accept the above means of payment due to the past fraudulent activities which has been going on
for quite some time now, whereby our Bank accounts have been hacked and used for fraudulent purposes
by person(s) who are located outside the UK. We have also received fake credit cards which was been
hacked from the rightful owners account, has also been used as payment. So therefore due to this, we only
accept payment from person(s) outside the UK to be made through MoneyGram, and this would be
temporary till we have had a better security to tighten up and secure our Banking account system and Bank
logins, before we would start giving out our Banking account numbers, so do bear with us.

It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle or mentions Cameroon

It's a definite scam, that is why it is posted here.

Please post any new email addresses/phone numbers/websites that the scammer is now using.

Hi everyone. I received an email from Mr. Justin Holliday,HMRC Processing Officer, 100 Parliament Street, Westminster, London,United Kingdom using this email address ( [email protected] ). I thinks it's a scam because he is asking for UK resident permit fee £700.40GBP. Please see below email from him.

Method of Payment:
The only accepted means of payment is through Western Union money transfer which is to be
paid to the office of the UK Border Agency through the office of Her Majesty Revenue & Customs At
100 Parliament Street, Westminster, London. Please kindly check Section 1 – A5 for payment
details. (This means of payment is temporary).
Credit Cards & Bank-to Bank Transfers (NOT ACCEPTABLE)

temporary till we have had a better security to tighten up and secure our Banking account system and Bank
logins, before we would start giving out our Banking account numbers, so do bear with us.
Please note that your application is invalid if you do not pay the specified fee in full or if you
pay by any method other than the required method of payment given above. You will then be
required to make a fresh application, and any delay in doing so may affect your appeal rights

Yes, it is a scam - the domain hmrcgroup.org was registered by the scammers a year ago, using a privacy service to hide their identity. It is not a legitimate UK Government website (they all end .gov.uk with nothing after it).

The best thing for your wife to do is just delete the email and not respond to them.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

I also received one last Monday. They've sent me their Contract Terms Of Agreement and it's weird because there are no signatures in the contract and there are no online live interviews, just some pdf attachments. I'm very glad that I didn't reply immediately and did some verification. But the company is legit though. There are something missing in the address and the telephone number is different from the company's website.
#375747 by Tim Atem Fri Nov 02, 2018 5:30 am
Is the email address they're using the same as what's been reported above? If not, please post their new email addresses and/or phone numbers. This will help warn others.
