Carlton resident warns of council tax refund scam email doing the rounds in Gedling borough

Bookmark
A scam email has been sent to Gedling borough residents telling them they are owed money for overpaid council tax.

Sharon Glasspool, who lives in Carlton, was one of the people in the area to receive the scam email yesterday (March 1).

She told Gedling Eye: “I am a GBC resident and have confirmed with the contact number that it is a scam. I have also notified Gedling Borough Council. People receiving this email should ignore it and delete it.”

SCAM: The email received today by Carlton resident Sharon Glasspool

We approached Gedling Borough Council to see if they would ever issue refunds in this way.

A spokesperson for the council said: “We don’t currently use a third party to issue council tax refunds. We would advise any residents approached by anyone other than Gedling Borough Council, about their council tax, to act with caution and contact us if they are unsure.”
