We’ve received information that emails are being sent to members of the public, falsely claiming to be from TV Licensing. The email address used is fraudulent and has no connection with TV Licensing.
Official emails from the TV Licensing service are sent from email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and always include the customer name and/or part of the postcode.
If you receive any suspicious or unfamiliar communications, please always take a few minutes to consider whether the request is genuine.
You should never provide personal details to an unknown or untrusted organisation, and always check with your provider if you’re uncertain about the validity of an email, call, text or other correspondence.
You should always feel free to challenge any communication, with criminals often trying to rush or panic individuals into making a decision.
If they think you’ve been the victim of a scam, please contact your bank immediately and report it to Action Fraud.
