I had an email last week from "TV licensing"
Telling me that my direct debit could not be processed and would i kindly press the convenient link and fill in and confirm my bank details.
Obviously i did just that and I'm sure I've got nothing to be concerned about.
Why did i put 4 courgette plants in..

Last year i had a surprise email from a 'Prince Hasseem'
He explained that he was a heir to a vast fortune. He said that in order for his lawyer to process the paperwork he needed £400.
He went on to say, that if i would send him a payment of the £400, he would repay me ten fold.
So naturally i sent him the money.
It's been over a year since, and I'm still waiting for my ten fold £4000 to arrive. I guess it's a hold up in the Nigerian post service.  :nowink:

I had a letter from TV licensing, asking us to arrange to pay for a TV licence, as we no longer qualified for a free one.   I put all of their rubbish into the prepaid envelope - omitting any forms with our name and address on, together with a letter thanking them for their warning about scammers and fraudsters, and asking "did they know that there is a broadcaster that had an agreement with the government to continue to fund over 75 licences in return for the ability to continue to increase the licence fee. This particular company failed to honour the agreement to provide free licences for ALL pensioners, and is now demanding cash from older pensioners for a service that they agreed to provide free of charge" I asked if this was the type of scammers and fraudsters they wished to protect me from, and did this sound familiar to them.
