Beware of scam telephone calls
Residents are reminded to be cautious of giving bank details out to any cold caller after West Lindsey District Council became aware of a possible telephone scam campaign operating in Lincolnshire.
A small number of elderly residents have received phone calls from a caller who was persistent in telling them their Council Tax had been reduced after their properties had been revalued and that they were eligible for a refund if they gave their bank details.
The Council stresses that residents should be careful if they are ever asked for their bank details from someone calling them and where they have not initiated the call themselves.
If it is a call from the Council's Revenues and Benefits department and the customer is unsure, then they can always end the call and ring back on 01427 676676.
