Warning over housing rent scam

We have received reports of a housing rent scam from our residents.

People have reported receiving a call from someone claiming to be from the council and asking for bank details and a PIN number to give a refund on housing rent payments.

Please be aware, this is a scam. The council will never ask tenants for a PIN number. Please do not give out bank details over the phone.

If you receive a call, please report it to Derbyshire Police by calling the non-emergency number, 101.
