Warning over council tax refund scam in Cumbria

A woman claiming to work for a Cumbria council has been contacting residents offering them a council tax refund.

The woman, claiming to be Amy Murray from Allerdale Council, has called several residents telling them they are entitled to a refund.

She has then been asking them for their bank details and a fee to process the refund.

Cumbria Police said the caller is a fake and have urged people not to give out their details to cold callers.
