Scam alert

We have received reports that automated messages are being sent to residents advising them that they are overdue with their Council Tax and in order for them to avoid a warrant for their arrest, they must press 1 on their key pad. Residents are then greeted by an advisor demanding payment. Please be aware – this message has not been sent by Oldham Council. If you are in Council Tax arrears we will write to you.
