Council tax in credit scam

News : 17 January 2019

Please beware of an email scam we have been made aware of trying to persuade residents to click on an email link to receive a council tax rebate.

Scam Alert

This is not an email from Wealden District Council.

We have had a number of calls from members of the public who have received an email from  a 'Andrew Walsh, Head of Digital Communication Services' advising them that their council tax account is in credit and please click on the link…

Please ignore the email. In cases where council tax is in credit we would send  written notification and a revised council tax  statement.

Other reports are of an email asking for payments because of council tax arrears.

Wealden District Council will never make an unarranged phone call to ask for your bank details.

Please never give out information about your bank account over the phone unless you are absolutely sure who you are talking to.

If you have any concerns, please contact us on 01323 443322.
