    A tv license is something you have, by law, to pay each and every year out of your hard earned money so that you can watch useless politicians of every persuasion telling you lies in the comfort of your own home. That sadly, is the con you can't avoid :mad:

    There is a standard letter on Martin Lewis, money saving expert stating that you don't watch live TV. I used it and got a refund. Never paid since, that was 4 years ago

    Yes, I've had the same email. If you go to the site in the link (not by clicking on it), it's a copy of the TV licensing site, looks authentic but the give away is all the hyperlinks don't work. Apart from the fact that they're asking for your bank details...:whistle:
