Council Tax scam alert
A local Suffolk resident was recently contacted by fraudsters pretending to be calling from the local council. The fraudsters advised that the resident's property had been placed in the wrong council tax banding and they were entitled to a £7,000 rebate if they paid a £65 administration fee in advance. This is a scam. If you receive such a call, please put the phone down immediately as no legitimate organisation will ask you to pay an advanced fee in order to receive a refund.
Once the festive fun is over, residents across Babergh and Mid Suffolk are reminded that they can recycle their Christmas tree at a number of convenient collection points across both districts.Read more
