Warning about ‘Council Statistics’ survey scam

By on 08/08/2013 in News

Birmingham City Council is warning people to be on their guard against a phone scam claiming to be for a survey on behalf of the 'Council House Statistics Team'. 

The scam offers entry into a monthly prize draw in exchange for personal information including dates of birth for members of the household.

A resident alerted the city council after receiving a telephone call earlier today.

The phone call survey was not carried out by or on behalf of Birmingham City Council.
