Council Tax refund scam - warning
- Release date: 3 March 2017
Residents in the Tewkesbury Borough have reported receiving a bogus email advising them that they will soon receive a Council Tax refund for a specified amount of money provided they confirm their bank details on a form which is linked to the email.
The email looks very professional, originating from a Miss Rourke who is described as a Revenues Advisor at Unity Partnership and using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please delete this email and DO NOT access the form requesting bank details.
The Council has reported this scam to Trading Standards.
