Council Tax refund scam – warning

Residents in West Oxfordshire have reported receiving a bogus email advising them that they will soon receive a council tax refund provided they confirm their bank details via a link in the email.

The email looks very professional, originating from a Miss Rourke who is described as a Revenues Advisor at Unity Partnership, and using the email address council.tax@council.tax.gov.uk

Please delete this email and do not access the form requesting bank details. 

The Council has reported this scam to Trading Standards.
