Scam calls in Waveney

Please be aware that some Waveney residents have received scam calls claiming to be from Waveney District Council. The caller - sometimes an individual claiming to work for the Council and sometimes someone claiming to be from a company calling on our behalf - tells the customer of a credit on their Council Tax account and requests the customer's bank details in order to issue a refund.

Other councils in the UK are reporting similar scams with the caller claiming to be from the bank.

We will never call you and ask for your bank details. Please do not give out your bank details over the phone and if you believe you have received a scam call, please call on 0300 123 2040.
