Warning on York council tax rebate scam

Residents in York have been targeted in a council tax rebate scam, the local authority has said.

York council said it had received complaints from people who had been approached by fraudsters offering to obtain a council tax rebate for them.

Some have been told the refund had been successful and been asked for a fee.

The council said taxpayers could query their council tax band at no cost and urged people not to give out bank details if cold-called.
