We're warning against phone scammers claiming to be from our council tax department. They might suggest you're in arrears and need to pay over the phone. Or they could claim your banding has changed and you're due a rebate - but that you need to pay to release the cash. These are scams. Please ignore these calls and never give any bank details out over the phone. For more advice, please contact Action Fraud at www.actionfraud.org.uk or contact the Action Fraud Hotline on 0300 123 2040.
