    Exclamation Dodgy(Hoax) Council letter

    Just received a letter through the post from my local council requesting bank information for direct debit purposes lol.

    Letter is written in the Birmingham City Council style, only the letter head is in black and white, and the signature is computer generated, and a poor one at that. There's even a separate prepaid envelope supplied in it, but the return address is post coded B4, Birmingham City Council is B1 lol, and the main envelope has stamped BCC logo's also....

    All very dodgy! Should I be calling BCC to report it or even take the letter to my local police station, as there's an actual address where I need to send the details, but in the whole letter, there's not one contact telephone number, which makes it pretty obvious it's a hoax letter.

    Mate call the Police and the City Council, dont know if you are aware, but there are a load of hoax letters doing the rounds in our area meant to be from the Police about some speeding offence.

    Also phone scams - I was phoned by a woman saying she was calling from EDF Energy on landline.

    She then asked me to confirm my full address and date of birth for 'security purposes'???!

    WTF - you are calling me, on a landline!!

    No way of knowing if she's genuine but she gave up pretty fast when I said I wouldn't give her the details...
