Urgent Advisory – Potential Fraud.
A potential fraud has recently been identified:
A third party has been writing letters purporting to be from the London Borough of Waltham Forest regarding potential reductions to Council Tax regarding Covid 19.
The letters direct the recipient to what appears to be a U.K. government website: (gov.waltham-support.co.uk).
The website asks the user for a reference number held on the letter and then for certain personal information.
Both the letter and the website are fake but are of good quality. As a result they are both fairly convincing.
In the event that you have already visited the website and provided any information you should contact the relevant organisations for help and advice as soon as possible.
