'Parking fine' scam emails

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 (at) 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.
