Sefton residents asked to be on their guard against scam emails
Sefton residents are being asked to be on their guard against scam emails, purporting to be from the Government.
One email relates to council tax and refers to a reduction in council tax.
All correspondence relating to your council tax bill will be sent from Sefton Council, rather than the Government.
Sefton Council will never ask for your bank details via email.
You should avoid clicking on any links or downloading any attachments in unsolicited emails or texts from unknown sources, or even trusted ones, unless you are absolutely sure that it is authentic.
