Residents are being warned to be on the lookout for a bogus letter supposedly from Newark and Sherwood District Council.
The letter is printed with a council letterhead and informs residents of an initiative to help the homeless and refugees in the area. According to the letter, residents will be required to rent spare rooms to those in need.
So far the letter has been delivered to homes in Blidworth but the council is concerned it might have been distributed more widely.
The council are asking people who may have received the letter to disregard it. If you are unsure about you can phone the council on 01636 650000.

Mark Spencer, MP for Sherwood, has posted a video of his cat online, as Battersea Dogs and Cats Home launch their first online election poll to crown Westminster's cat of the year.
The Nottingham politician's cat is called 'Parsnip' and the furry feline is up against other moggies nominated by MP's and Lords in Westminster.
To be crowned 'Pur Minister' of cats, the contestants have provided a 50-word manifesto - or 'manifursto' as it is being called - setting out why they think their pet is the best candidate.
Battersea's head of Cattery, Lindsey Quinlan, said of the competition:
"We're really excited about our Westminster top cat competition and hope MP's have great fun entering their cat and the cat-loving public enjoy choosing their 'Purr Minister'"
