A large number of people have received a scam email suggesting that it is an urgent reminder for an alleged parking offence. This email is NOT from the Ministry of Justice and we advise against responding to it or clicking on any of the links contained in the email. The email contains the following content:
REMINDER NOTICE DO NOT IGNORE
Your vehicle was recorded parked on our Clients Private Property at Katherine Road
driveways from 12.13.23PM to 14.40.36PM on the 11.02.2014 and remained on site
for 2 hour 27 min. A notice was sent to you on 6.03.2014 which gives 28 days to
pay full PARKING CHARGE or challenge the issue.
The amount of £70.00 is now due If payment not received within 28 days, an
additional 40.00 administration charge will be incurred. Failure to pay the full
outstanding balance within 14 days of the date of this notice could result in the
outstanding balance being registered as a debt against you. You will also become
liable for additional costs and interest invoiced. Your ability to obtain credit in the
future could be affected.
We are holding photographic evidence on file to support this claim.
YOU CAN FIND COPIES OF PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE AND FORMS FOR
MAKING PAYMENT IN ATTACHMENT BELOW.
If you believe you have been a victim of this scam you should report the matter to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or via their website. For further information on this and conformation from the Ministry of Justice please visit www.justice.gov.uk.
