It's a scam email. You should bin it. Don't click any links and don't give any personal information.

I dare say that if you hover over the purple update button you will find a pop-up with a link address which has nothing to do with TV licensing. Let us know. Simply hover your mouse over that link and see what pops up. Anyway it's a scam

hi BankFodder, I  actually  thought the same as looking at the email address for one! 

Also  license has  gone up!  Is it worth me informing  the real tv licensing  about this?

 

Thank you 

 

Sandy
