Fake emails sent to residents


A number of residents have contacted us to say that they are receiving scam emails from a fake council address, alerting them to a "held payment’ or a request for bank details.

This email is fraudulent and is not from us, so please do not reply or give any bank details.

The fraudulent email addresses that are being used are pictured below: martin@@dacorum.gov.uk and hwa.yoo@lmh.ox.ac.uk. A legitimate council email address uses the full name of the sender and then @dacorum.gov.uk.

If you have any concerns about emails sent on behalf of Dacorum Borough Council, please contact us on 01442 228000.
