For Immediate Release

Rutland County Council is warning residents not to respond to unsolicited emails offering refunds for an overpayment.

Several Rutland residents have contacted the Council after receiving an email that appears to come from HM Revenue & Customs and claims to offer a refund following a City Council overpayment for late 2017.

Councillor Gordon Brown, Portfolio Holder for Revenues and Benefits at Rutland County Council, said: "Always be wary of unsolicited emails offering refunds, discounts or asking for you bank details. If we need to contact you about a refund then, in the vast majority of cases, we will do this by letter. Only in exceptional circumstances, when someone has moved address without telling us, will we try to contact you by email and this will only ever come from a Rutland County Council email address. If you receive a scam email you should contact Action Fraud straight away to report it."

Contact Action Fraud, the UK's national fraud and cybercrime reporting centre, on 0300 123 2040 or through the Action Fraud website:


4) Cottesmore History and Archaeology Group

Cottesmore History and Archaeology Group are currently working to produce another book, and we are looking for your help with it. Sometime ago we captured on tape memories of village life from some of our older inhabitants – this new book will bring together extracts from these interviews, and so aim to present a picture of village life between the 1930s and the 1970s. We would like to illustrate these memories with pictures of village scenes from that period – so if you have any photos that you would be willing to lend us we would be happy (and very grateful) to hear from you. If you think you can help, may we ask you to contact us by ringing John Meara on 812350. Many thanks.
