    Alert: Beware of Justice.gov.uk scam parking fine emails


    Fraudsters are sending emails that claim victims have to pay a fictitious parking fine that contain a suspicious attachment [10 March 2014]
    Our contact centre has received several calls from victims reporting having received emails that claim they have to pay a parking fine.
    The emails originate from justice.alerts@public.gov.delivery.com and have been spoofed to make it appear as though they have been sent from justice.gov.uk. These emails are not from the Ministry of Justice or GovDelivery.
    The emails ask you to download “photographic evidence and forms for making payment” but the attachment is likely to contain a virus. If you receive one of these emails, delete it, do not download the attachment and report it to us.
    A recent example of the phishing email
    Subject: 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.
    To report a fraud and receive a police crime reference number, call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or use our online fraud reporting tool.

    Katherine Road is incredibly busy, I'm surprised anyone can find a space....
