We are getting reports that a fraudster is posing as someone from the council and is asking people for their bank details.
Do not give out any personal or bank details as nobody from the council would ask for them over the phone.
If you receive a suspicious call make a note of the time and any phone number of the person making the call and report it to the police on their non-emergency 101 number.
