    Just received an email that's allegedly from Ofgem offering an energy bill rebate AND a £500 non-repayable Council Tax rebate. Clicked the link and even though I filled in details such as Donald Duck living in Disneyland it still took me to the page where it asked me for Account Details. Beware folks. Scammers will never give up!
