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.

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.
