Don't get conned by parking fine scam
MOTORISTS in Worcestershire are being warned to stay alert to a car parking fine con.
Drivers are being sent bogus parking tickets from the email address email@example.com.
The scam involves the use of a genuine company’s name, PenaltyChargeNotice.co.uk, but the address sending the fraudulent emails has nothing to do with the firm.
Both Wychavon and Malvern Hills District Councils have today warned their residents about the scheme.
They say that genuine parking tickets are never issued by email and always contain details of the vehicle and its registration number.
Anyone who receives an email fitting the description is warned not to divulge personal information.
