SCAM ALERT FROM GWENT POLICE

Sent 20 June 2019

Council warn over Council Tax refund scam

Monmouthshire County Council is urging residents to remain vigilant after receiving reports of unsolicited emails offering Council Tax refunds. The message reportedly tells householders they have an outstanding refund and encourages them to click on a link.

Monmouthshire’s Revenues team advise it’s not official council correspondence and residents should exercise caution before providing any details to a third party.  The Council recently had to issue similar warnings when residents described receiving phone calls advising them they were entitled to a rebate on their council tax bill.

Thank you for reading and may you all stay cyber safe.

GROSMONT CYCLING FESTIVAL

Cycling weekend[26695]

“The cycling festival returns to Grosmont for its 4th year! The weekend will include a children’s skills and racing session by Welsh Cycling, the Best-Dressed House competition, as well as a mini beer festival, street food and live music at the Angel Inn. We hope as many villagers as possible will turn out to support the two key cycling events: the Amateur Sportif event on Saturday 29th and the Cwmtillery Glass Monmouthshire Junior Grand Prix on Sunday 30th, which will see one hundred of Britain’s best junior riders aged 16-18 from all over the UK take on the challenging 120km race. The riders will pass through Grosmont three times, from about 12 noon. For further information about the children’s activities, village events, parking and Sunday road closures please see the village leaflet.”

MCC “PARK RIGHT” INFORMATION

This booklet was forwarded by the clerk to Grosmont Community Council, who thought it might be of interest.  This is obviously not specifically for Grosmont but has lots of useful information.

FROM GWENT POLICE – SCAM ALERT

SENT 29 MAY 2019

Please be aware that fake tv licensing emails are scamming people out of thousands of pounds.

Individuals are receiving what appears to be a tv licence email with a web link leading to a fake website which requests personal and financial details.

Fraudsters are then using these details to call victims claiming to be from their bank, asking that money be moved to a ‘safe account’.

If you think you have received an email or call from fraudsters, you should report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

Thank you for reading and may you all stay cyber safe
