"FTAdviser has learned criminals are seeking to take advantage of this situation by attempting to defraud the self-employed with a promise of a lump sum payment.
FTAdviser understands a scam text message has been circulating purporting to be from HMRC and offering a lump sum of money to freelancers and the self-employed in the current economic climate. The message contains a link which asks for bank details to complete the transaction."
Please be aware and don't get scammed.
