Have your say

Leeds residents are being urged to be vigilant over a council tax refund scam.

Council chiefs say they have been made aware of householders receiving bogus emails which appear to be from the authority.

The emails offer a Council Tax refund and ask people to follow a link and to confirm bank details.

A spokesman for Leeds City Council said: “It is important that you DO NOT follow the link or input your bank details. Leeds City Council will never send emails asking for bank details in relation to a Council Tax refund. If you do receive an email and have concerns that it may not be genuine please let us know.”
