CHESHIRE EAST TRADING STANDARDS WARNING
Cheshire East Council would like to issue an urgent warning to all local residents.
We have received reports that individuals are telephoning residents, usually elderly people, promising Council Tax refunds.
The caller explains, wrongly, that if a person pays £90 for an information pack and gives their bank details they will be entitled to a refund.
These claims are false and we would ask anyone with concerns to contact Cheshire East Council.
Under no circumstances should a person disclose their bank details.
These incidents have been reported nationwide and local people are urged to be on their guard.
