Parking Ticket Scam
Nick Allen (Rushcliffe) 10th February 2017

Please be aware?

 

ICT would like to make all Members aware of a Parking Ticket Email Scam.  

 

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 have titles such as 'Parking Charge Reminder' and claim you have parked on private land belonging to one of UKPC's clients. The emails contain randomly generated reference numbers and quote a charge of 90 pounds
The bottom of the email asks victims to click on 'payment options and photos' for more information.


Clicking on this link will result in the download of a file which contains malware! The malware is configured to capture confidential banking information such as PINS and passwords, together with payment authorisation codes.


If you receive one of these emails, delete it and do not download any files or attachments.

If you have any concerns that your computer may have been compromised by one of these emails, please contact the ICT Service Desk immediately on 0115 914 8333
