SMDC Warn Of Automated Council Tax Calls

Automated phone calls demanding people make payments to their council tax accounts have been targeting residents in an area of North Staffordshire.

Staffordshire Moorlands District Council say people living in the district have received the calls – and are urging anyone who receives one to hang up.

A council spokeswoman said:  “We’ve been made aware that some residents have received automated calls asking them to make payments to their council tax accounts – this is not us.

“If you receive a call like this just hang up.  Please pass this message on to friends, family and neighbours.”
