The email says users are getting a reduction because they are on a low income or benefits and offers a reduction for the last three years.

The user is then offered a payment worth hundreds of pounds and asked to submit their payment card details to get the funds.

A statement from the council said: “Please be aware that Fife Council have not sent out this email and would not contact customers in this way.”
