Police Scotland have issued information on fake TV licensing refund scams.
There has been a recent increase in fake TV licensing refund scams via email. The email usually states that the refund cannot be processed due to “invalid account details”, and provides links which lead to phishing websites designed to steal personal and financial details.
Police Scotland advise that, in this and all emails, people always question unsolicited requests for personal or financial information, and never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text.
For further information, including how to identify a scam email, please view the Police Scotland information leaflet.
