Hello, I was supposed to receive a cheque for a tax refund from HMRC on the 26th July 2022 it didn't arrive. I contacted HMRC who said a new cheque will be issued that never happened. I called again I was told the repayments team will be check and send out comms and today (15 Jan 2023) I get a letter from HMRC saying that the cheque has been cashed on the 23rd of Aug 2022. I didn't receive the cheque, I didn't cash this cheque nor did I receive any of the money so can only suspect fraud.
Can someone advise on what to do in this situation? I have already reported this to the police.
