Warning About Council Tax Reduction Scam

Bogus company has been ringing Merton residents

A bogus company claiming to reduce council tax payments has been calling Merton residents asking for their bank account details.

Calling from the number 0844 800 9426, is it understood the caller asks for bank account details, so an administration charge can be paid up front, to cover investigation costs.

Merton council says that anyone wishing to check their council tax band can visit the Government Evaluation Service, which offers the same service for free.
