Council tax 'band reduction' scam
If you receive a phone call from a company offering to reduce your council tax band for a fee, please do not pay, as it's a scam.
Council tax refund scams
If you've received an email which appears to have come from HM Revenues and Customs, advising that you are due a council tax refund and asking you to click a link, please ignore it as it's a scam.
The Council will not ask for a fee in advance of issuing a rebate - any email, phone call or other form of contact where you are asked for a fee to release a Council Tax rebate is a scam.
Similarly, any emails from firstname.lastname@example.org requesting you to provide details to claim a refund, are also a scam.
