COVID-19 GRANT Phishing E-mail

There are currently e-mails in circulation claiming to be from from councils stating the grant payment will not be processed until the ratepayer clicks on a link in the e-mail to authorise the payment.   Gosport Borough Council will NOT send an e-mail asking any ratepayer to do this.  You can report suspicious e-mails here.

It has also come to our attention that there are firms offering to claim the grants for ratepayers for a fee. This is not necessary, you do not need to pay someone to do this for you.  Please contact us first before entering into a contract.
