TV licence email scam: More than 5,000 complaints in three months per BBC News

'A TV licence email scam has led to more than 5,000 complaints over the past three months.

Cyber crime monitor Action Fraud said fake TV licence emails regarding payment issues had been sent out to try to collect bank details.

The number of reports has increased in each of the past three months, with 1,805 complaints in December alone.

Action Fraud told the BBC the scam was "particularly nasty as it looks so convincing".'

Just 5,000 complaints about a TV Licence scam? 

The BBC report just on 5,000 complaints but I'm sure that there is many more being scammed out of money by the BBC.
