Message from RCC re Fraud Alert

The Council has taken a large number of calls from residents who say they’ve been contacted by scammers posing as Council officers and asking for bank details over the phone. In some cases they are also claiming to work for the resident’s bank to extract this information.

Our advice to resident’s is as follows and we would appreciate it if you could help to share these messages online, via social media or any other channels at your disposal:

  • Rutland County Council will never contact residents out of the blue to ask for their bank details
  • Anyone who does get a call from someone claiming to be from the Council and asking for bank details should hang up straight away – do not give out any personal information
  • They should then report the call to the national fraud reporting centre, Action Fraud on: 0300 123 2040 or online at: www.actionfraud.police.uk

We have already been in touch with our pool of local media and Leicestershire Police, who are supporting this.
