scam alert

Alert message sent 25/11/2019 08:18:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary


Good morning,

information received from Halton trading standards.

Halton Trading Standards wants to advise consumers to a scam email regarding TV Licences.
We have had recent reports that consumers are receiving emails stating that ‘Today is your last chance to remain licensed’. The email then states that ‘you won’t be covered if you let your licence expire’. This sort of wording is designed to pressurise consumers into making an immediate decision and deprive them of sufficient opportunity or time to make an informed choice.
The scammer has included 6 links to their website within the email which makes it more likely that recipients will click on a link by accident. 
Do not click on any links and never part with our banking or personal information unless you are sure of who you are dealing with.
The genuine TV Licensing website is tvlicensing.co.uk.


kind regards

PCSO 21122 Maggie Sumner
