WHAT DO I DO NEXT? TV LICENCE SCAM EMAILS

The free tv licence for all over 75’s ended on 31st July 2020. If you had a free TV licence you don’t need to do anything as starting in August letters from the TV Licencing Authority will be sent to explain what you need to do to set up your next licence. Some over 75 households can claim a free TV licence.

To be eligible:

• The licence holder must be 75 years or older
AND
• You, or your partner living at the same address, must receive Pension Credit.

TV LICENCE FEE SCAM EMAILS
During August there will be a lot of activity surrounding setting up a new TV Licence and warnings have been issued about receiving a TV Licence Fee Scam Email.
These emails are a phishing scam, a common type of email fraud where scammers will send bogus emails pretending to be from a respectable organisation. This is to trick you into clicking through to a fake website where you will enter your personal details.

Although the emails may use the TV Licensing logo and have other features that make them look authentic, you should never trust them.
