We are aware that some Ashfield residents are receiving phone calls from bogus callers stating that they can get them a reduction in their council tax banding and a council tax refund. The caller goes on to say that all the customer needs to do is sign up and provide their bank details for the refund to be paid into. This is a scam which has been going on for some time and is still ongoing.
Ashfield District Council will never call someone and offer this service, nor would we ask for your bank details over the phone. No-one can guarantee a reduction in council tax banding.
Please share this message with friends and family, particularly older residents who we believe are being targeted.
