Trafford iCAN Alert - fake TV Licensing emails

TV Licensing have started to write to everyone over 75 asking them to either pay for a licence or apply for a free one.

Scammers have already started to send out scam emails so please be on your guard if an email asks you to make an immediate or urgent payment or asks you to update personal or financial information as TV Licensing will never ask you to do this. Look out for emails beginning "Dear Customer" as TV Licensing will always use your actual name.

Check them out at www.tvlicensing.co.uk or call TV Licensing on 0300 790 6151

Forward suspicious emails to report@phishing.co.uk.

Never give personal or financial information to someone you do not know.
