HOMEOWNERS are being warned not to divulge their personal details over the phone as a bogus caller targets south Northants.
Last week South Northants Council issued an alert regarding a bogus caller asking for personal details such as bank account details.
A spokesman for SNC said: “Some residents have been told they owe council tax and threatened with a prison sentence if they do not pay.
“We want to remind all residents that we will not contact them by phone offering a council tax refund and strongly advise against giving out personal information to such callers.”
