Telephone scam alert
Just to let you know that Sedgemoor District Council (SDC) have told us that they are aware of a person telephoning residents saying they are from SDC and/or NHS or Somerset County Council saying they have compensation for them for their recent accident and to pass over their bank details.
SDC advise anyone getting these calls to take the person’s name and number and to phone Sedgemoor Direct on 01278 435435 to check authenticity. Under no circumstances should they give out personal details to the caller.
SDC have alerted the Police and Trading standards.
