Sedgemoor District Council is warning residents that there is a new spate of cold calling whereby council tax scammers are targeting people by phone. 13/08/19
One current scam that has been brought to the district council's attention is from a company claiming to be called 'claimers' who call on behalf of Sedgemoor District Council and ask for £150 to lower your Council Tax banding. Council Tax bands are set by the Valuation Office Agency and can only be changed under certain conditions. Details can be found at www.gov.uk/council-tax-appeals and you will not be charged for the service.If you are struggling to pay your Council Tax bill and need help, speak with a member of the Council Tax Team on who will be able to offer help and advice on 0300 303 7801.
