Cold Callers

The following piece has been passed on to Council by PCSO Greenwood and they felt parishioners should be informed.

Persons cold call residents by telephone telling the resident that they have been placed in the wrong council tax bracket for a number of years and are entitled to a rebate. The resident is told that in order to receive the rebate they will need to pay an administration fee in advance. The payment they ask for varies between £60-£350. The resident provides the details and makes the payment, but then is no longer able to make contact with the person they spoke to on the phone.

If you receive a similar call please hang up and do not give your card details.
