I can bring your Council Tax down!

No - not me!  But cold callers who are phoning householders with claims that they can lower their Council Tax bands.
Of course there will be a substantial 'administration' fee to pay and most likely your Council Tax band will stay as it is.
It's the time of year that we get our Council Tax demands and it is also, no coincidence, the  time of year these rip-off merchants are operating.

It amazes me how there must be no end of gullable people around falling for these scams or they'd simply die out.

There may be an odd occasion when a rating is wrong but not often. You also have to remember that if you ask your council to reassess your banding it can go up as well as down Wink
