Eastleigh Borough Council is issuing a warning about cold callers that has been reported to us by residents.
We have been made aware that some householders in Eastleigh have been visited by a man at their property claiming he is from the Council. He has been demanding entry to their property to discuss unpaid Council Tax that is owed.
Residents should be aware that these approaches are fraudulent and the Council would never act/contact residents in this manner. A Council Officer or agencies representing the Council would always identify themselves and you would always receive correspondence prior to a visit taking place.
These approaches have been reported to the Police and we are advising residents to simply close the door to anyone making an approach of this nature. You should report any incident of this kind to the Police by calling 101.
