This morning I received an email purportedly from TV Licensing saying that my direct debit had been declined by the bank for my TV licence and that if I didn't pay they would cancel my licence and report me to a debt collection agency!
The email has been deleted because:
a) our TV licence is in my husband's name not mine and isn't due for renewal until February - when it will be paid in full, not by direct debit
b) the licence number they gave was not the same as the one on our licence
Although I knew it was a scam it gave me quite a turn for a few minutes until I had found and checked our licence. So please everyone beware of this latest email scam!
