Swap event gives people chance to exchange unwanted items in Cheltenham
RESIDENTS of Bishop's Cleeve and Woodmancote are being warned about hoax calls.
The scam involves fake phone calls, where people pretended to be from the council and told residents they were entitled to a council tax rebate.
The local policing team asked the community to warn their elderly neighbours, who were being particularly targeted, about the calls.
They told residents they were entitled to a £2,000 refund due to incorrect banding and attempted to make an appointment at their home.

Councillor Tony MacKinnon (LD, Bishop's Cleeve) said: "The main thing with anything of this nature is to be careful of giving any personal information over the phone, particularly if they are asking you for your bank details."
