Beware Council Tax email scam.


Beware council tax email scam.

North East Lincolnshire Council is warning people of a scam email that is circulating in the area. The scam email about council tax refunds is a very realistic looking scam.

The scan email promises a council tax refund for overpayment. If you click the links within it and follow the instructions given it can compromise your personal information.

There are flaws with the email with a paragraph about getting your refund fast being repeated.

If you are in doubt contact the council directly on 0300 303 0164 (option 5) or email

This email looks genuine but it is not real.
