Fake TV Licencing Emails Received by Thousands


Be aware - there have been more than 5,000 reports about fake TV Licensing emails in the last 3 months. In December 2018 alone, 200 reports were made, with victims reporting a total loss of £233,455. The banks say they cannot reimburse customers who have mistakenly authorised payments to fraudsters.

How It Works

  • An email is received about TV licence payments/refunds.
  • The payment/refund link is to a "genuine-looking" website.
  • Personal and bank details are requested on a fake form. 
  • Within two weeks, the criminals call, claiming to be from the fraud department of the victim's bank.
  • They tell the victim that fraudulent activity has taken place on their account and to transfer their money to a new "safe account".

What To Do If You’ve Fallen Victim

  • Let your bank know as soon as possible and monitor your accounts regularly for unusual activity.
  • If you have lost money to the scammers, contact Kent Police by calling 101
