BEWARE OF FAKE UKPC PARKING TICKET .

E-MAIL LINK CARRIES MALWARE.

The Action Fraud service is warning that they are receiving more and more warnings of a vicious e-mail link placed onto fake UKPC parking tickets.

This is the original warning from the Action Fraud website.

Fake UKPC parking ticket emails loaded with malware

10th November 2016

Fraudsters are sending out emails purporting to be from a legitimate company called UK Parking Control LTD (UKPC) that claim you have a parking ticket. 

The convincing looking emails entitled “Parking Charge Reminder” claim you have parked on one of UKPC’s client’s private land.

The bottom of the email asks victims to click on “payment options and photos” for more information – a link that is likely to contain malware. If you receive one of these emails, delete it, do not download the attachment and report it to us.

The emails contain randomly generated reference numbers and quote a charge of £90. UKPC have received hundreds of calls today from worried recipients and have confirmed that they would never contact people in this way.

To report a fraud and cyber crime and receive a police crime reference number, call us on 0300 123 2040 or use our online fraud reporting tool.

That was the original warning from the Action Fraud website.
