Council tax rebate scam
HOUSEHOLDERS are being urged not to act on Council Tax rebate emails circulating in the county.
Carmar thenshire County Council’s trading standards say it is an online scam and another attempt to get residents’ bank details.
The email claiming to be from a GOV.UK address states that its recipient is entitled to a refund of a particular amount.
It goes on to say that they should click on the link to get the money paid into the bank faster.
Officers are warning people not to click on the link and say if anyone is a due a refund it will be indicated on the usual credit bill that is sent out by the council tax section and not by email.
