Watch out for Fake TV Licensing emails

There has been a sharp increase in reports about fake TV Licensing emails claiming to offer refunds.

The email (as pictured) states that the refund cannot be processed due to “invalid account details”. The links provided in the emails lead to phishing websites designed to steal personal and financial details. Also notice the poor use of grammar and misspellings (they can’t differentiate between licence and license) which is a giveaway.

Always question unsolicited requests for your personal or financial information in case it’s a scam. Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text.
