ALERT: 26th March 2020. A member has sent us a copy of a TV Licence Fee scam received by email. Our member was alerted to the scam being in receipt of a free licence and having seen official communications saying that the licence would have to be renewed on 1st. June 2020 and then a further delay announced on TV. Our member also noticed that the date on the e-mail was written in a different format to the one used in the UK. Our member searched the sender address and found other people have had similar emails and are also pronouncing the sender a scammer.
Our observant member notes: “I am deleting and blocking this sender now, please take care not to hit the “RENEW NOW” legend.”
The scam email is reproduced below with the receivers actual email address (our members email address) concealed. BEWARE, the scam email might just end up in your own inbox.
