Issued by AVDC today


Residents are being urged to be on their guard against bogus officials offering council tax refunds as a number of people in the Vale have already been targeted.
People are being telephoned and told they may qualify for a refund and then asked for their bank account details so the payment can be made. In previous cases they have been asked for an administration fee too.
Jeff Membery, AVDC Assistant Director for Customer Fulfilment, said: "We have reported these incidents to Bucks Trading Standards but are concerned that other residents could fall for this scam and lose money. We urge everyone to be vigilant and not to give out any sensitive information to unknown callers, either on the phone or in person".
Residents who receive any such approach should contact Thames Valley Police - www.thamesvalley.police.uk/contact-us/
