Scam Alert! TV License scam

Hi Everyone,

We have come across another scam and this time the scammers are focused on the TV Licence.  The email states that your TV Licence has been flagged due to outdated account details.  It goes on to say that if you do not respond then your license will be suspended.

You are then encouraged to click on a link contained within the email which is entitled, 'Update now'.  This email is fake and is designed to steal your details.  If you have been targetted with this email

 

  • Forward the email to phishing@bt.com then delete it
  • If a suspicious link was clicked or attachment opened/downloaded then run a virus check on your computer
  • If bank details were given out then contact your bank immediately and change your online banking passwords

 

Here is an example of this Phishing scam
