ALERT: Scam Phone Calls Offering Council Tax Rebates
Callers from a company called Shore Claims Ltd are claiming to be offering a refund on Council Tax, going back years and promising thousands of pounds in potential claims. In order for them to investigate they ask for a £65 fee. The telephone number they called on is 03003034570.
This is a scam. Please hang up the phone if you are contacted by this company and don’t pay them any money. If a company rings you offering a service, and you are not sure if it is genuine, research the company yourself, including the phone number they called you on. Very often the scam is already listed and you will know not to engage with them in the future.
To report a fraud and receive a police crime reference number, call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or via their online fraud reporting tool.
