Drivers Targeted With Fake Fines – What you need to know
Action Fraud have received an increase in reports and intelligence where elderly victims are being targeted by individuals purporting to be police officers or traffic wardens. The victims are being approached whilst parked in a car park and are told by the suspect that they have parked illegally or broken a speed limit and a photo has been taken of their car for ‘evidence’.
Victims are advised that they will face a substantial penalty fine unless they pay a smaller upfront fee immediately. Victims, who opt for paying the smaller penalty, will be directed to a parking meter and asked to enter their card and PIN. These parking meters have been tampered with by the suspect in order to retain the card.
Once the victim inserts their card and are asked for their PIN, the victims are shoulder surfed for their PIN by the suspect. Once victims input their PIN, the card is retained by the machine and victims are told by the suspect to seek help from the company who operates the parking meter or their bank.

What you need to do
If you are suspicious about the authenticity of the fine, do not pay it until you have verified it with your local council.
Always shield your PIN from view when using an ATM machine, and never share your PIN with anyone.
If your bank card is retained by an ATM machine, contact your bank immediately to inform them.
Firms Overcharging For Services – Leicestershire Trading Standards is warning about firms overcharging for services which can be applied for directly. These firms generally operate online and are known as copy-cat websites, they often charge for a service you can get for free or at a must lower cost on the genuine site. Sometimes they take an exorbitant cut of a refund, but this detail is hidden in small print and you only realise when it is to late. Examples are European Health Insurance Cards, tax refunds, passports, visas & driving licences.
All can be accessed legitimately through
To report a copycat website to Trading Standards or for consumer advice contact Citizens Advice on 03454 040506.
