   SCAM ALERT - FALSE WBC COUNCIL TAX REFUND CLAIMS    11 September, 2019

⚠️ Council Tax refund scam

Waverley Borough Council is warning that there is a scam at the moment where  residents have received misleading text messages claiming to be from the council.

The messages state the recipient is owed a Council Tax refund and include a link to claim the refund.

Waverley state they would never contact residents to offer a refund in this manner and this appears to be a phishing scam.

Residents are advised never to give out private information (such as bank details or passwords), reply to text messages, download attachments or click on any links in emails or texts if not absolutely certain they are genuine.

You can also report a misleading website, email or phone number to: http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/
