Council Tax refund scam - warning

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 council.tax@council.tax.gov.uk.

Please delete this email and DO NOT access the form requesting bank details.
The Council has reported this scam to Trading Standards.
