Warning - Council Tax Refund Scam

posted 9 May 2017, 08:37 by Robert Cowley

From Cotswold District Council:
"A resident  in the Cotswolds has received a telephone call from a 'company' which allegedly works for Cotswold District Council. He was told that he was due to receive a £6,000 council tax refund because his Council Tax banding has been too high in the past. 

The telephone number of the bogus company is 03332 123132.  

Please be aware that this scam may be targeting many residents in this area and please do not enter into any discussions with the caller.  Most importantly, do not disclose any personal information such as banking details. 

The local police have been made aware of this scam. "

Following the refusal by Cotswold District Council Planning Committee members Gladman has taken its application to Appeal. The Parish Council, Cllr Mrs Juliet Layton (CDC) and several local residents submitted objections to their Appeal.  The Inspector will look at all aspects of the case and in theory should respond five weeks after the closing date for comments, which was 6th April.
