Scams and bogus calls

Local residents have been receiving telephone calls from people claiming to be from our council tax department, stating they are due a large refund.

Residents are then asked to provide their bank details so that a refund can be made.

We do not, and would not, make these telephone calls and would never telephone unexpectedly regarding a council tax refund nor would staff ask for bank or credit card details by telephone to process a refund.

If anyone receives such a call they should refuse to disclose information and phone us on 01752 668000. Our staff will confirm whether any refund is outstanding and if so arrange a refund in the normal manner.

We take many payments securely by telephone every day from residents, but we do not refund to cards. If anyone has passed details of their bank or credit card to anyone recently regarding a refund, they should contact their bank branch or card company immediately.

Further information and documents

Your council tax helps pay for a huge range of services. These include keeping our streets clean, keeping us all on the move, enabling our children to achieve and enjoy their schools, as well as be on hand for key moments of people's lives, such as weddings and registering births.

Like all public organisations we face challenging times as the Government reduces its funding for local public services.
