I have just noticed an email supposedly from TV licensing, saying that my TV licence expired on 1st Dec & there was a problem with the direct debit payment, also details of what to do to avoid this being referred to a debt collection agency.
It looked genuine, had the correct logo etc.
Alarm bells rang as I was fairly sure that it didn't expire in December. On checking my licence is valid till August of next year and the payment left my bank account months ago!
Looking at it again, it is addressed to "Dear customer", suspicious!
I am 100% sure this is a scam & that acting on this would probably give people access to your bank accounts.
I have never seen this before - hence this post to make people aware.
Worrying that so many of these scams are taking place.
