WARNING – Don’t get caught out by Council Tax scam
Eden District Council have received a number of reports of scammers cold calling and emailing residents – claiming to be offering a Council Tax refund.
The scammers are asking residents to give their bank details. This is a scam. The scammers are claiming to be from Unity Partnership, a service delivery partner of Oldham Council. Councils and their partners will never call or email residents to offer a refund and ask for bank details.
Don’t get caught out. If you do receive an email offering a Council Tax refund and asking you to provide you bank account details by clicking on a link, ignore it and delete the email. If you are cold called and asked to provide your bank details to receive a Council Tax refund hang up and ignore the request.
