Dear <<First Name>>
HMRC Scam                                                                        
A Woolavington member received a phone call yesterday with the message that the police were on their way to arrest her for non-payment of a tax bill.  She very wisely promptly ended the call.
 
We drew attention to this scam on the 12th February this year and as it’s now possible that this area is now being targeted with it, the full response from HMRC issued at that time can be viewed HERE as a reminder.
TV LICENCE SCAM
 TV Licensing will not contact you by email concerning refunds
Fraudsters are issuing fake TV licence refund emails in a bid to steal victims' bank account details. The scam email claims to offer a refund for over-payments of TV licence fees but states the victim's bank details need to be updated before the refund can be issued. The email then links to a website designed to look like TV Licensing's own website with a form for victims to enter their details. In reality the website has been set up to look authentic, but the form steals victims' bank details, giving the fraudsters the chance to steal the victim's savings.
 
Action Fraud pointed out that TV Licensing will not contact you by email concerning refunds. If you've received an email claiming to be from TV Licensing, don't open any attachments or click any links in the email's text.

The police are reminding all dog owners to keep their dogs under control around Livestock.  There have been two reports of sheep being killed/injured by dog attacks in recent weeks.
