For those in the UK
Scam alert!!!!!
 Just had a call purporting to be from the Telephone Preference Agency saying they're upgrading their service.
 Apparently I will never get another nuisance call in my life!
 Started checking details, address, postcode, did I pay by direct debit, was it due to expire in 2018 (wrong, they don't expire). At this point I started getting suspicious, since the TPA is free, but when he wanted to check the expiry date on 'one of my payment cards' I stopped cooperating and started asking why. He kept insisting so I told him he was becoming a nuisance call and hung up.  
 Rang the TPA and they confirmed it is scam originating outside the UK. They are looking into it but the numbers used keep changing, so difficult to pin down. My caller came up as 'number unavailable'.

There's a fake email going around purporting to be from the tax people.   It says if you click on a link you will get a large refund in a few days.   HM Revenue & Customs do not send emails; they send letters.

Over 75s have to start paying for their TV License from next year.   Just received this in an email.   So obviously a scam.

If you get a call from 01274 786501 just hang up.   It's a scammer.   Will probably tell you he's from BT.

Heads up **WARNING** I've just had a SCAM phone call telling me that 39.99 is being taken from my bank account for amazon prime? It said to cancel this transaction press "ONE" I know I don't have amazon prime so put the phone down and phoned amazon who confirmed it is a SCAM.
One person who did press "ONE" gave bank details and had 25,000 attempted to be taken from their bank account but! Luckily the bank stopped it to ask the owner if they had authorised it...
DON'T PRESS ONE... JUST PUT THE PHONE DOWN
