Detective Constable Gareth Jordan from the Cyber Crime Unit at Dyfed-Powys Police HQ has alerted us to a new scam:
Received an email telling you that you have a Penalty Charge Notice? It is most likely a scam.
Dyfed-Powys Police have had several reports of residents being targeted in this way. HM Courts and Tribunals Service are not sending these out, it is a scam. The criminals are trying to get you worried.
Do not click on the [click to pay] box.
Do not phone the telephone number.
Delete the email and tell your family and friends. The more people that know this is a scam, the fewer victims there will be.
