Coun­cil tax re­bate scam

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

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.
