“This is a ‘phishing’ scam, designed to steal your personal and financial details. 

“Our advice is DO NOT click on the link. If you receive this email, report it straight away to Scam Action on 0300 330 3003 and then delete it.

“If you have any doubts about the current validity of your TV licence, contact the TV Licensing company DIRECTLY using information available on their official website .”
