Council Tax phone scam is once again operating in our area.
Elderly residents are being called by someone claiming to work for Tandridge District Council. They are offering residents a reduced council tax band and a refund if they pay a £65 fee. They are then asked for their bank details. Unfortunately we are aware of at least one resident who has paid the fee.
Tandridge District Council will never contact residents to ask for bank or other personal details. They always ask residents tp call 01883 722000 to speak to staff so they can be sure they are talking to council officers.
If you know of anyone who is contacted please ask them to call Consumer Direct 03454 040506, visit www.adviceguide.org.uk or call Surrey Police on 101.
