Various companies have been approaching older people in Stockport, about
council tax over payments. Not all companies who contact people are acting
illegally, however re banding of council tax is not a service people need
to pay for.
Last Monday someone was arrested because of a scam relating to this.
Please make all older people you know or visit aware that the council can
reassess banding free of charge, this is not a service someone has to pay
for they simply need to contact the council on 0161 217 6014 and ask for it
to be checked.
The council do not cold call about this.
