Fylde Council has issued a warning to all residents of Lytham St Annes.
Scammers have been found to be sending text messages suggesting that the recipient is entitled to a ‘refund’. The type of refunds offered were not specified.
These texts have linked to a fake website which, if filled in, will harvest your personal details for malicious use.
The Council has advised that they will never ask for personal details by text message.
