      Digital and Cover legit cover or scam?

      We have been recieving calls and letters from a company called 'Digital and Cover' 08455575965 regarding insurance on my digital box, I have never heard of this company is it in any way sky-approved? or some kind of scam?


      They seem to have a lot of details they shouldn't have if they aren't supported by sky.

      There is only one Sky authorised repair / extended warranty company, and that ain't it. Stay away and give them no details whatsoever.

      Be very careful calling something a scam without hard proof, its us that has to fend off the solicitors.

      Been there done the teeshirt, had the letters. Zero tolerance on this mate, seriously. We nearly got sued a few years ago, because one member, used one word, in the same sentence as a company name.
