Council tax band scam alert as scammers promise reassessment and refunds | Personal Finance | Finance


They advised: “Delete any emails or texts straight away and block the sender; do not reply or click on any links. If you receive a phone call, end the call as quickly as possible.”

South Hams District Council also warned residents to be on their guard against this scam. 

They explained: “Once the resident has provided bank details, they are given another number to call which informs them that they need to pay an administration fee to get the refund.

“The Council would never ring a resident to ask for their bank details to issue a refund. If an overpayment had been made, and a refund is due, we would either refund the money directly if it had been paid by direct debit, or send a credit notice to the bill payer’s address.”
