Residents have been warned to remain vigilant against a new council tax telephone scam.
Caerphilly County Borough Council’s Trading Standards team were contacted by a member of the public after receiving a phone call from a surveying company claiming their council tax band was too high.
The caller stated that for an upfront fee of £120, they would be able to get it reduced for the resident.
Residents with any queries about their council tax banding should contact the council directly for information on 01443 863 002 or by emailing email@example.com
