Businesses urged to stay alert to a fraud scam

Friday 20 August 2021

Businesses are being urged to stay alert as a fraud scam is targeting existing and potential suppliers of equipment to organisations such as the council.

A local business has recently been defrauded out of almost £40,000 worth of goods.

Businesses are reminded that all authentic emails from the council will originate from a ‘’ email address.

Anybody who thinks they may have received a suspicious email is encouraged to report it to the council’s senior fraud investigator.
