Beware of scammers
Fifers are being warned that a new council tax scam is circulating and to be careful that they don’t fall victim to it.
A company calling itself ACS is contacting residents claiming that for a fee of £150, customers can apply to have their council tax property band reduced.
Customers are reminded that they should NEVER pay for any service in relation to council tax banding or similar schemes.
If you’ve been contacted and want to check if it's legitimate, call the Council Tax team on 03451 55 11 55 or visit www.fifedirect.org.uk/counciltax
If you suspect a scam or think you or someone you know has been a victim of a scam, please report it to the Citizens Consumer Advice Helpline on 03454 04 05 06 or Action Fraud on 0300 123 20 40.
