We have received information from a customer that a man visited their home in Langwith claiming to be from the Council.
The person had an ID badge with a photo and the title of Technical Officer, and asked for a screenshot of the owners Universal Credit (UC) details in order to update his Council Tax.
This was not an officer from the Council as we would not request information in this way. A description of the person was very slim, trainers, black baseball cap and a 'cheap suit'.
We urge people not to give any personal information in this way and if you are unsure of a Council officers identity, then please contact us on 01246 242424 as if genuine, the officer will not mind waiting whilst you verify their details.
