HMRC Fraud Reporting Tool Does Not Protect Privacy and Reporters Are Left With Neither Feedback Nor ‘Receipt’

HMRC Useless UI, No Reference

Summary: The crimes of Sirius ‘Open Source’ were reported 7 days ago to HMRC (equivalent to the IRS in the US, more or less); but there has been no visible progress and no tracking reference is given to identify the report

THE system of accountability (“checks and balances” is the motto) isn’t working. The matter is now being escalated to a political level.

The video above deals with HMRC. I don’t have much to say about the progress; I have received no reference code/number, they did not get in touch (phone, E-mail, post), and it’s not clear if they’re doing anything at all to hold Sirius accountable. As noted earlier, HMRC inaction would say a lot about the system and reinforce the widespread belief that enforcement is done only/mostly against foes of “the system”. Irrespective of severity, scale, and strength of evidence.

Setting up a UI in a Web page is only the first step; does HMRC do anything with what’s collected in this UI? it’s certainly not designed for anonymous reporting.
