Council Tax Scam Warning

Posted on: Thursday 9 August 2018

We've received reports that customers have been receiving unannounced calls advising them that their council tax band has been reduced and requesting bank details to allow for a refund to be raised.

The caller is in possession of the customer’s name, address and current banding. The address and banding are readily available on the valuation website.

For people's information, the council would never call a customer and request bank details - we would issue them with a revised bill which would detail if a credit is appropriate.
