TV Licensing ScamJust a heads up on another silly attempt at scamming people over their TV licence.

I get one of these at least once a year and can spot them a mile off. This one (in May) came from postmaster@kuriya.jp, which is an automatic giveaway in the first place. The second clue is in that I know our licence is up to date. The third clue is that ‘TVLicensing’ and ‘TVLicence’ have no space, whereas the proper TV Licensing title does. Edit: I had another one in June, which I just binned, and another just now from ‘support@tvlicensing.co.uk.a’ (see the extra ‘a’ at the end?)

TVL will always use your full name in their own emails (this one had my email address), and they will always come from donotreply@tvlicensing.co.uk or donotreply@spp.tvlicensing.co.uk.

And never click on links from emails if you are unsure of them.

If I’m wrong, then I expect a visit from the Yakuza in the near future. I’m not especially worried.
