We have become aware that scam phone calls are being made from a person or persons claiming to be from “Greystone Consultants” or “Greystone Consulting”.
These calls appear to be targeted at elderly home owners and offer a rebate on Council Tax.
The malicious caller suggest that the called party’s home in under the incorrect council tax bracket and they are due a rebate of several hundred pounds. This is unfortunately a common scam and a number of people have been conned into making “admin” payments to this malicious party.
Please be assured that these calls are nothing to do with ‘Greystone Consulting Ltd’ the IT services company.
We advise anyone affected to call the fraud department of their bank immediately to make them aware and notify Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
