TV Licensing Visited - Or Did They??

I came home to this today:

The intimidating letter claims that I was visited today and I need to take action within 7 days to avoid another visit!  So they 'visited' to say that they are going to visit me!

Once again they go on to say that the only way to stop the intimidating letters and threats of (another) visit is to buy a TV Licence that I DO NOT NEED as I DO NOT WATCH LIVE TV or use the IPLAYER!

The weirdest thing is though, they never rang my doorbell or knock on my door.  They simply got out of their car and posted this odd letter through my letterbox, turned around and left!  I know this as I checked my doorbell camera.  Very, very, odd.

Even if you go on to their website and fill in the form to say you do no need a TV Licence they still threaten to pay you a visit so what's the point in that!

TV Licensing - Happy New Year! - Will you be in on 3rd February?

Happy New Year to TV Licensing as they continue to harass me and try to intimidate me in to buying TV Licence that I do not need!

First of all, unless the BRITISH Broadcasting Corporation has turned in to the AMERICAN Broadcasting Corporation, shouldn't it be Will you be in on the 3rd of February??

It's a Thursday which is a weekday so I'll probably be at work on the 3rd of February.

Again, they boast of visiting an address every 6 seconds (8,000 intimidating visits a day)!

The only way to stop the intimidating letters and threats of 'Officers' visiting you "Day. Evening. Even weekends" is to "buy a TV Licece" "before it's too late" and don't forget "if no one answers, they can come back".

Threatening.  Bullying.  Intimidating.  Threatening.

How is this harassment legal???

I do not have a TV Licence as I do not need one!   If I watched live TV (on any channel) or use the iPlayer then I would buy one, but I don't so I don't need one.

The only way to stop these threats "before it's too late" is to "buy a TV Licence".

CWS Cigarettes Corset Factory Desborough (Co-Operative Wholesale Society Ltd) Cigarette Card

Look what turned up in the post today - I paid a lot more for this cigarette card that I really wanted to but hey-ho, such as life!

C.W.S. Corset Factory, Desborough.

The C.W.S. commenced corset making in Manchester 1898.  It soon became evident that larger premises would be required, and land was bought at Desborough upon which this business-like factory was erected.  Its productions are, or should be found in every drapery store.  For style and comfort they are unequalled.

TV Licensing - OFFICIAL NOTICE (Again)

Another OFFICIAL NOTICE from the lovely people at TV Licensing - MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Apparently I am "in breach of the Communications Act 2003" or at least that's the intimidating wording they are hoping you will read that will scare you in to paying them £159 a year, each year to stop them contacting you both in writing and in person.

Nothing more than a protection racket.  I still don't know how this practice can be legal.

Just because I know their tricks and lies doesn't mean others don't - how my vulnerable people have been scared in to buying a TV Licence that they do not need?

How many of the 8,000 visits a day (1 per 6 seconds according to TV Licensing) result in people being tricked/scared/intimidated?

TV Licensing - Official notice: Investigation opened

Well, it's definitely official that an investigation in to me legally not requiring to have a TV License as they've plastered it all over the envelope to tell the Postman that I don't have a TV License - yet another tactic to intimidate people in to buying something that they do not need.

Once again they lecture me on the law and try to intimidate me in to paying for a TV License that I do not need.  I do no watch Live TV or use the iPlayer so I DO NOT NEED A TV LICENSE!

TV Licensing - Your IN01O0A18

 Oh no!  My IN01O0A18 has arrived...

Lots of people have been receiving an IN01O0A18 letter/notification and we've all got the same code so unless it's some kind of cryptic message that you need Alun Turing to decrypt it seems like a random code they've made up to make it look scary to try and intimidate you in to buying a TV Licence that you do not need.

"We need to check you are not breaking the law" - no, no you don't.  You may like to but you do not need to as there is no legal requirement for you to do so.  I have not broken the law as I do not need a TV Licence.

Again, the only way to stop the intimidation and threats is to "buy a TV Licence" - I still cannot comprehend how a protection racket from the BBC can be legal practice!

TV Licensing - Final Stages of Investigation

Not long now then as they are now proceeding with the "final stages of our investigation"!

Apparently, an Officer has been scheduled to visit my property (again).

"We can apply to court for a search warrant to gain access to your property" - you can't get much more intimidating than this can you?

"An Officer may interview you under caution" they are salespeople NOT POLICE!

"Anything you say to the Officer may be used as evidence in court" - just say No Thanks and close the door.

"If your property needs a TV Licence, you will still need to buy one" - no shit Sherlock!  If you watch Live TV (of any kind) or use the BBC iPlayer then you need a TV License, if you do neither of these things then YOU DO NOT NEED A TV LICENCE!

"In Scotland, Scottish criminal law applies" - you don't say!  You've sent me the letter yet you aren't sure if I'm in Scotland or not??

"A reminder of the law"

"Let us know you dont need one"

This is a complete and utter LIE, there is no law that says you have to do this.  If you do not need a TV Licence then do not buy one, that's all you need to do.
