Council tax scam alert
23 May 2019
Residents in South Lakeland are being warned about a council tax text message scam.
The fraudsters are messaging residents’ mobile phones to say they are due a refund on their council tax and asking them to provide personal information, including their bank details.
We would never contact residents in this way and urge anyone who is suspicious to contact the police by calling 101.
We are also asking residents to not click on any link in the text message.
