Council Tax scam alert

We are aware of a scam operating in the area where people are posing as Melton Borough Council and calling residents claiming there is a refund due on their Council Tax before asking for bank details.

Please be advised:

  • We would never contact you by phone to advice of a Council Tax refund.
  • We will always refund by cheque or to the bank account details we hold for Direct Debits.
  • If you want to check if your Council Tax account is correct or in credit log onto our my account facility on our website or alternatively call us having your council tax account number and personal details to hand for security reasons.
  • If you have been affected by this please call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or www.actionfraud.police.uk
