Following reports of scam telephone calls, Uttlesford District Council (UDC) has re-issued advice regarding contact from third party operators.
Residents have reported receiving calls from someone pretending to work for UDC, who is calling on behalf of the NHS regarding an alleged incident in the last three years.
The calls are nothing to do with UDC and the council is advising people to hang up and and report the incident to Action Fraud.
UDC is currently seeking feedback on its budget consultation until Monday, October 10, and calls from a company called NWA on behalf of the council are genuine.
A spokesman for UDC said: “The only personal details NWA will ask for are postcode, gender and age. They will not ask for any other personal details such as bank details. If you have any concerns, please contact the council’s customer service centre on 01799 510510.
“If in any doubt at all, please end the call.”
