Scam Alert: Fixed Penalty Notice

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.
