I have reproduced his comments here anonymously as a 'Letter':
"I have been in recent deliberations with the Child Support Agency. During a telephone conversation this morning I was asked about my job to which I replied self employed consultant and investor.
"I was then asked about how I worked and what I did. Did I work through an agency? Did I have a limited company? How long were my contracts? Who were they for? I know enough about IR35 to be able to dodge these questions, however I was suprised at them as I would expect them from a tax inspector.
"It would appear that HMRC may well be using the CSA to trawl for IR35 'targets'.
This is not the only case I have heard of like this. Has anyone else had similar experiences - or is it just a co-incidence?
