Please be aware that we have had reports that fraudsters are making phone calls, claiming to be from Hounslow Council regarding the Government's £150 council tax rebate and asking for bank details.

Hounslow Council will never phone and ask for bank details, and there is nothing that residents need to do at the moment with regard to the rebate.  More details will be provided about this at a later date.

If you receive a phone call, and the caller says that they are from the council, please ask for a name and then call us on our main switchboard number to verify the details if you are not sure that it is a genuine call.

If you suspect that a crime is being attempted then please contact the Police using the 101 phone number.
