‘Never trust them’: Warning over ‘fake’ TV licence emails
- Credit: Archant
Householders are being warned following numerous reports of fake emails being sent that claim to be from TV Licensing.
The email tells customers that they are entitled to a refund as they warn that the TV licence is “about to expire.”
A post on the Suffolk Trading Standards Facebook said: “Please beware of these emails that are disguised to look like they have been sent by the TV Licensing organisation.
“They may say you’re entitled to a refund for an overpayment or warn that your licence is about to expire.
“They will then ask you to respond by entering your bank details on a fake website.
You may also want to watch:
“Although the emails may use the TV Licensing logo and have other features that make them look authentic, you should never trust them.”
