We would like to make residents aware of a TV Licence scam
We would like to make residents aware of a TV Licence scam.
It would appear that an email is sent to customers stating that the payment for their TV Licence could not be taken and to click on a link.
Once clicking on the link the customer would be contacted by phone and the person on the other end of the phone was someone pretending to be from the customer’s bank stating that their bank account needed freezing and they would have to transfer their money into a new account.
The customer was told to use a specific browser where they would be asked to put in their bank account details and the scammers would then use this information to extract money from their account.
Should anyone receive any communication regarding their payments for their TV Licence we would suggest that you contact TV Licencing direct via their official website or contact your bank direct.
Should you receive any emails you suspect are from fraudsters please contact www.actionfraud.police.uk
