The Council have been made aware that a number of residents have been target by scammers receiving cold calls from someone claiming they could get their Council Tax banding reduced for them.
Callers may claim to be from Ashfield District Council or a company called Shore Claims. They are asking for customers bank details and and claiming they can refund the difference.
This is a scam and in no way related to Ashfield District Council. The Council are are looking into it and ask that all residents be vigilant at this time.
