Council Tax reduction scam

Our revenues team have been receiving calls from Council Tax payers in the Wirksworth area about phone calls and emails claiming to advise of a Council Tax refund.

This is a *SCAM* that is happening at the same time as legitimate Council Tax bills are being posted to Derbyshire Dales residents this week (the legitimate Council Tax envelope includes your annual resident parking permit and a copy of the Dales Matters publication).

The scam email purports to be from Gov.Uk and is signed by "The Government Digital Service Team". It states an amount of money you can claim because "you're on a low income or get benefits".

Do not click on any links in the email or give any phone caller your personal details.

If you are concerned that you may have revealed sensitive information, please contact your bank.
