Council tax phone scam warning

Beware bogus calls from a 'company' which claims to be the Valuation Agency or Tax Recovery Bureau. The caller claims you are owed a council tax refund as your council tax banding has been too high in the past.

The telephone number of the bogus company is 0203 4767710.

Please do not enter into any discussions with the caller. Most importantly, do not disclose any personal information such as bank details.

Trading Standards have been made aware of this scam.

For more information on how to identify council tax and business rates scams, and what you can do to avoid them, see the GOV.UK webpage.
