The Fake TV Licensing scam is doing the rounds again by both text and email.
You may get an email pretending to be from TV Licensing that claims the recipient’s Direct Debit has failed and they need to pay immediately to avoid prosecution.
People are told that they are also eligible for a ‘COVID-19 Personalised offer’ in which you would get 6-months free.
The messages contain links to genuine looking websites that are designed to steal personal or financial information.
Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text, also never ever give out financial information to anyone you do not know.
