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 http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/news/fake-parking-ticket-emails-loaded-with-malware-nov16.

 

 

Neighbourhood Watch Newsletters are now not routinely issued but only when something major happens. Surrey Police now issue advices via "Active Citizens" and when received, these will be published here on this page.

We have been advised of a new web site that gives advice on spotting and avoiding common scams, frauds and schemes online and offline. Follow this link for more details http://comparitech.net/avoid-scams
