New Council Tax refunds email scam

Scam AlertThe latest scam is an email that says you have a new message from GOV.UK about your Council Tax. The email suggests that you are due a refund because of a Council Tax Reduction.

You are thenĀ asked to click a link in the email to claim your Council Tax Reduction.

Do not respond to these emails: they are fraudsters trying to obtain your credit, or debit card details.

Council Tax is collected by Eden District Council and refunds are made directly to your bank account, not to your credit or debit card.

If you have any concerns that an email about any Council service is not genuine please telephone the Council on 01768 817817.
