Just a warning. I work for a local Council, in the Council Tax Dept. Most people are aware of the £150 fuel rebate, that the government is giving people, to help with fuel costs. I've had a number of calls, at work, today, from people who have had a phone call from 'The Council', asking for bank details, so the payment can be put directly into the bank. THIS IS A SCAM TO GET YOUR BANK DETAILS! Never give any details to a 'cold caller'. Please take care not to fall for this, and warn any vulnerable people about these lowlife scumbags.

If I get the call I will do my usual and give them a fake number, pausing regularly between each number to thus waste even more of their time....
