      Exclamation Friends+Family email warning!

      There is currently an email in circulation set in the exact same format as the old friends and family email, it gives a code and states that it can be redeemed for the previous offer of 1 years half price if you ring this number.

      This number is not an official sky number, someone will answer the phone as sky and even structure the call the way a sky agent would but to "confirm your upgrade/activate your new account" they will ask for your credit card details.

      Be very careful with telephone numbers on emails, this is a well thought out scam.

      This is shocking - the lengths some people go to to steal your information.

      It makes me think I should get identity fraud protection!

      Thanks for letting everyone know,
