Several consumers have told us they have had phone call telling them they are in the wrong council tax band. They have been offered the chance to undergo a review, with the likely outcome being that they will be changed to a lower band.
Bank details have been requested before the review will start.
Please be on your guard. There are legitimate companies that do offer this service, however there are also criminals that will use this tactic to con people out of their money.
If you feel you are in an incorrect council tax band, please contact your District Council for advice as they can undertake a review for you.
Anyone who feels they have been a victim of a scam, or requires consumer advice can call the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 08454 04 05 06 for further advice.
