Trafford iCAN-Fake Council Tax rebate emails Members are warned to look out for fake emails which offer a council tax rebate. The initial email says you are entitled to a rebate and asks you to click on a link. This link takes you to a page which looks like the gov.uk website. This page contains another link leading to a form that asks for personal and financial information. This is a scam.
Never click on links or open attachments on emails that come out of the blue and never give personal or financial information to someone you do not know. Take five minutes to stop and think then check things out with a friend, relative or neighbour.
Report scams to actionfraud at www.actionfraud.police.uk or 0300 123 2040. Please share this information with friends, relatives, neighbours and social media platforms.
