Warning over 'TV Licensing' phishing emails
Officers are warning the public to be aware of phishing emails that are currently circulating.
Northumbria Police has received reports that members of the public are receiving emails from ‘TV Licensing’, with links to a convincing looking website.
The website then requests that people enter personal and financial details.
Once these details have been entered, people are then being contacted by fraudsters who claim to be from the fraud department of the bank people are registered with.
Report activity of this nature to Action Fraud, call 0300 1232040, and a Cyber Protect officer will be in touch in due course. TV Licensing has some further advice on its website www.tvlicensing.co.uk/faqs/FAQ288.
