Why we're here:
This blog is to highlight the unjust persecution of legitimate non-TV users at the hands of TV Licensing. These people do not require a licence and are entitled to live without the unnecessary stress and inconvenience caused by TV Licensing's correspondence and employees.

If you use equipment to receive live broadcast TV programmes, or to watch or download on-demand programmes via the BBC iPlayer, then the law requires you to have a licence and we encourage you to buy one.

TV Licensing Inviting Scam Emails


TV Licensing is inviting recipients of scam emails to forward them on.

According to a recently added page on the official TV Licensing website: "By sending us the scam email as an attachment to scam@tvlicenisng.co.uk (sic) you allow us to extract as much information as possible in order to beat the scammers."

Of course given the dodgy spelling of that email address, it could be another TV Licensing scam in its own right!

It'll be interesting to see how long it takes TV Licensing to correct that mistake, given that we have now drawn it to their attention.

Given that TV Licensing's slipshod attitude towards cyber security (read more here and here) is undoubtedly responsible for some, if not all, of the recent boom in scam emails, it's only fair that everyone forwards on any scam emails they receive.

There are a lot of these scam emails about at the moment and, in TV Licensing's own words, performing this important civic duty will enable them to "beat the scammers".

Of course the email address provided (scam@tvlicensing.co.uk) is only intended for scam TV Licensing emails.
