URGENT SCAM ALERT!

Scam Alert

Thanks to the gentleman who called us to to say he'd had a telephone call claiming to be from Mendip Council saying he was owed a Council Tax refund. I'm sure this isn't confined to the Mendip area. They asked for his D.O.B. and bank details. He refused, they got shirty. Please be aware & hang up.
