    HI,

    I know this should probably go in the Sky Forums, but I thought it should be placed in here as well!

    Basically, there's a new Phishing scam doing the rounds, whereby an automated voice-call computer asks if you have Sky TV installed in your property. Then, a few days later, you get another call, from a scammer, stating that your Sky DD has been returned unpaid (or your Credit Card details are invalid), and can you please set-up the Direct Debit or Credit Card payment up again, over the phone.

    DON'T DO IT! See here for details!

    yeah, i got this call a few days back. Didnt really give it enough time to hear what it was all about, before i put the phone down - always do with anything pre-recorded.

    better warn my parents then...altho because i pay the bill they wouldnt hand over their card details anyhow...lol

    mind you, i wouldnt hand it over either........i always read my bank statement when it comes in and can see if a debits been missed...if it has then i wait for a letter telling me i havnt paid and i call them on the main business line and ask for the dept.....if they cut my sky off i could care less, a couple days, oh no shock horror...lol...

    edit: altho dad might suffer from lack of sports...lol
