Residents warned of text message scam

Published19th March 2019

Ipswich residents are advised to be on their guard after reports of a council tax scam.

Some people have been sent text messages claiming they are entitled to a council tax rebate. They are advised to go to a website, which asks for personal and financial details.

An Ipswich Borough Council spokesman said: “We do NOT text customers to advise of a refund. People can review their accounts online. Please do not fall for this cruel scam.”
