TV licence scammers have started to target the over 75’s, they write to everyone asking the to either pay for a licence or apply for a free one.
Trafford Trading Standards are telling people to be on your guard if you get an email that asks you to make an immediate or urgent payment or asks you to update personal or financial information as TV licencing will never ask you to do this.
Look out for emails beginning with ‘Dear customer’ this is an obvious scammer email as TV licencing will always use your actual name.
