TV Licensing Scam

Here’s an official-looking e-mail I just received regarding renewing the TV Licence I don’t have (but could easily fool someone who does):

The give-away was the sender’s email address being @hotmail.com. The design of the email is quite believable though and following the link to “Review your account now” redirects to an equally believable webpage:

Again, a close look at the URL gives it away, but the page looks good.

I would inform the official TV Licensing of this but their contact form requires that I either give them TV Licensing details, or my address; up until now they only know me as “The Legal Occupier”…
