Wiltshire Trading Standards are warning Calne residents of a TV Licensing scam currently in operation in our area.
Several reports have been received of a woman cold calling at homes to say a direct debit to TV Licensing has failed and she needs to take a payment. She is carrying a card machine with her and fake ID.
TV Licensing have confirmed they would never collect payment in this manner and customers would be notified in other ways if they were behind with payments.
If you receive a similar call please do not make any payment and notify the Police on 101 as soon as possible.
