February 10th, 2017

Rushcliffe Borough Council ICT dept have passed on the information below regarding 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.
