Scam Warning: Telephone calls claiming to be from Sky Tv
Residents in Halton have been receiving telephone calls claiming to be from Sky Tv. The caller says the consumer’s security had been compromised. The caller then says the consumer needs to get on their computer immediately.
This is highly likely to be a scam and the next step would be to log in to a particular website, download a programme, give over personal details or all of the above.
 
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a fraud please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.
If you need advice on anything else please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline  or 0808 223 1133
