Scams: Number of scam texts targeting £400 energy bill support on the increase
Flintshire residents are being warned to watch out for fake text messages claiming to be from the Government, inviting people to apply for the £400 energy bill support.
It’s a scam – the £400 will be paid automatically. People do not need to apply.
The scam text tells the receiver that they are eligible to apply for a discounted energy bill as part of the Energy Bills Support Scheme.
But this is a scam, and should be ignored and/or reported.
