Tv License Starting to Contact 75 and over People about Paying Tv Licenses .
In the News
Ive received an email from Age concern about 75 year olds who now have to pay for the tv license unless in receipt of certain benefits .They have said if someone is contacted outside the ways described then the people contacting them are likely to be scammers.
Here's the email ,
This week TV Licensing have started sending letters to anyone aged over 75 asking them to either pay for their TV licence or apply for a free one. I want to make sure you know what to expect when you get your letter, so that if you’re contacted by scammers before then you’ll be able to spot them.
TV Licensing will only ask you to pay using the following options:
By post using the address: TV Licensing,
PO Box 578, Darlington DL98 1AN
Over the phone on 0300 790 6151
If you are contacted and asked to pay for your TV licence using a different phone number, a different website or by posting your details to a different address you have been contacted by a scammer.
TV Licensing have also been clear that they will not come to your doorstep to collect the licence fee if you are over 75, so anyone who claims to do so is also a scammer.
