Hoax Calls re Council Tax refunds

The following information has been released by the Council.

The Council has been made aware that hoax calls are being made to Council Tax payers claiming that the account holder is due a refund of Council Tax and asking for their bank details. The Council Tax section do not ask anybody for their bank details when processing any refunds.

On one occasion the hoax caller claimed that their name was Raphal and their number was 0203 444 6672. Trading Standards and the Police have been notified. It would be helpful if you spread the word to friends and family to ensure that they are not caught out by this hoax.
