Published 20 March 2019
It has been brought to our attention that some of our tenants have been receiving text messages from someone claiming to be the Council. The messages are advising people that they can receive a refund from the Council and to visit a link to a website that they describe as ‘secure’. This is not a secure website, do not click this link if you receive this text. Those who have clicked the link have been charged. Luckily the people that have been victim to these texts have, in this instance, had all their money refunded.
