Plymouth City Council warns residents about new scam

    Someone has been calling people pretending to be from the local authority

    Plymouth City Council is warning residents about scammers pretending to be them.

    Trading Standards say locals are being called by someone who asks for their bank details to issue a council tax refund due to 'a computer breakdown'.

    The authority is warning people to not give out any personal information if they are contacted.

    They also say that staff will not ask for card details unless they are taking a payment from you and if you are owed a rebate, they will be able to verify your address and the Council Tax reference number.
