Example of the scam email…!

Parking ticket scam alert!

 Our Chairman and a member have both this weekend received an email containing the above.  It looks very realistic and very similar to UKPC’s website!

However, we have been advised by the Head of Operations at the BPA that this is not genuine.  We are informed that PCNs will NEVER be transmitted by email as there is NO database which links vehicle registration marks with email addresses.

We are told that UKPC are doing all that they can to put a stop to this but there is little that can be done when they target people through their personal emails.  I guess we have to put it down to modern life and be super-vigilant!

We noticed that it carried DMUK’s logo on the bottom.  As you know DMUK is our current nominated charity, so we have alerted them and they have reported it.
