Bogus Council Tax Refund Text Message Warning

scam alertTamworth residents are being warned to be on their guard after a number of people received text messages asking for their bank details in order to claim a council tax refund.

The texts claim to be from a .gov address and tell the recipient that they are due a refund on their council tax.  The text then asks for bank details.

These texts DO NOT come from Tamworth Borough Council and are bogus.  Tamworth Borough Council would never text customers to ask for bank details.

Anyone receiving one of these texts should NOT respond with their bank details.
