Good afternoon,

Action Fraud have advised that so far this month, they have seen 260 reports about a coronavirus-related TV Licensing scam.

The emails purporting to be from TV Licensing claim that the recipient's direct debit has failed and that they need to pay to avoid prosecution. Recipients are told that they are eligible for a "COVID19 Personalized Offer" of six months free. The messages contain links to genuine-looking websites that are designed to steal personal and financial information.

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.

If you receive an email you're not quite sure about, please forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service: [email protected]
