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 counciltax@nelincs.gov.uk.

This email looks genuine but it is not real.
