BEWARE: fraudsters are taking advantage of the coronavirus crisis
During the coming weeks the council will be supporting communities through a range of financial measures to help businesses and individuals during the coronavirus crisis.
Unfortunately, criminals are using the crisis to scam people out of their money and personal information by requesting information by text message, e-mail or social media on the pretext that they are the council.
North Lincolnshire Council will never send you an unsolicited text message, e-mail or social media request to asking for your personal or financial information. If you receive an unsolicited text message or an e-mail from North Lincolnshire Council asking you to provide personal or financial information….STOP…. It’s a scam.
For the latest information about how the council is providing financial support during the coronavirus crisis and how this support can be obtained go to our Coronavirus (COVID -19) webpages.
Further information on other Covid 19 fraud scams can be found on the Friends Against Scams website.
A special hotline has been set up for people to report suspected fraud. Trained staff will answer your calls during office hours. Outside these hours you can leave a recorded message. You do not have to give your name.
Contact us if you see or hear of anyone who is:
- Getting money from the council that they are not entitled to – this could be payments for contracts, supplies, grants, benefits or salaries
- Stealing or misusing council stores, equipment, vehicles or buildings
