Cumbria Trading Standards are warning the general public about a fake email ticket scam purporting to be from some of The British Parking Association (BPA) approved operators, UK Parking Control Ltd and CPS Enforcement (Northern) Ltd.
The fake email tickets contain links to photos, payment options and to appeal. These links may contain malware and should not be clicked/opened.
Legitimate Parking Charge Notices are NOT sent by email and anyone who has received one should delete it immediately, and report this to the National Fraud and Cybercrime Reporting Service (Action Fraud).
If anyone has any concerns they can call the BPA on 01444 447300.
