What's that website that tells you that hoax emails are hoaxes?

I've seen it mentioned on here loads of times, but now can't find the link.

I've just had one purporting to be from the Inland Revenue telling me I'm due a tax rebate. I've deleted it (no 'to' address, not addressed to me personally by name - these two are enough to convince me it's not 'real') but can't find evidence of it as a hoax by googling and am curious.

Thanks

That definitley won't be real (but you know that)

if the inland revenue wanted to contact you re tax rebate they would send you a cheque through the post.

Even if it is for 3p.

And I got excited an all.

3 miserable pence.

Not worth the paper it was printed on.,

LOL @ 3p... Oh dear!

Thanks Tinker. Found the same email in an American version on Snopes and have saved Snopes to Favourites for future reference.
