Insurance Scheme Scam

Friday 7 June 2019 Insurance Scheme Scam
We have been made aware of a scam targeting tenants that buy their contents insurance through the Council's insurance scheme.
The scammer asked if they had their card to hand as their insurance premium had changed and a payment was needed. If they made the payment he could offer them a 75% discount.
Ashfield District Council will never call and ask for card details. Any changes to policies like this would be communicated via letter.
Please share with any vulnerable tenants and contact the Council if you are contacted by a scammer.
