TV licencing scam: Just a warning that people are being contact and told that their TV licence cannot be renews as something is wrong with their direct debit.  The email asks you to set up a new direct debit by clinking on a link.

The National Pensioners Convention believes this is a scam – one of a few that TV Licencing (TVLA) is experiencing at the moment.  TVLA will always put part of your post code into its email heading so you know it is the real thing.

If you pay your licence fee by direct debit and you are not sure whether a payment has been taken (or is due), contact your bank. You can also contact TVLA on:  0300 790 0368.  Opening hours are 8.30 – 18.30 Monday-Friday and Saturday 8.30-13.00 If you receive one of these emails, please do not be panicked into setting up a new direct debit before you have followed the above route to ensure that your personal details (and your money) are kept safe.
