Council Tax Scam
The Council will never contact you and ask for your financial/bank account information. If you have been contacted by someone claiming to be from the Council, please do not provide your details.
We have been made aware that an individual falsely claiming to be from Mendip District Council has contacted at least one local resident saying they were working with Mendip District Council to reduce council tax payments and asking for their bank/card details.
This is not an exercise the Council is undertaking and we ask that If you are in any doubt about the true identity of someone who claims to be representing the council please contact us on 0300 303 8588
