Rutland County Council
Warning about targeted phone scam
We’re taking the exceptional step of using Your Rutland to warn you about a spate of cold calls currently targeting Rutland residents.
In the past 48 hours, lots of you have contacted us to say you’ve received phone calls from people posing as Council officers and asking for your bank details over the phone. In some cases these callers are also claiming to work for banks in order to get hold of personal information.
Please be aware that Rutland County Council will never call you out of the blue to ask for your bank details.
If you do get a call from someone claiming to work for the Council and asking for bank details you should hang up straight away – do not give out any personal information.
Report any suspicious calls to the national fraud reporting centre, Action Fraud, by calling: 0300 123 2040.

The Wing Neighbourhood Plan questionnaire will be distributed in the next few days by one of your neighbours. They will try to see you in person but if you are not at home on a couple of occasions they will post it through the door. We have questionnaires for all adults living in the parish of Wing and also one for 17-year-olds and under there is no minimum age.
Wing really needs your views so I hope you can find the time to fill it in and encourage the youngsters in the house also to do so.
The completed questionnaires can either be collected by your distributor or posted into boxes in the church porch or village hall. There will be a few extra copies in the village hall if you need more.
