Warning over speeding tickets which are actually a scam – Motorists are being caught out by a new scam email saying they have been caught speeding.
Fraudsters are targeting motorists with realistic emails claiming to have “photographic evidence” of speeding.
People are being urged to immediately delete the email – as it will install a virus on your device which can hack your details.
The warning comes from Greater Manchester Police who are being used as a front for the hoax – but Action Fraud, National Fraud and Cyber Crime Reporting Centre, reported late last year that the cyber criminals appear to be targeting victims across the country.
The scam leads to a banking trojan malware – a virus that hacks into your computer and can access or track your personal information.
The ‘Notice of Intended Prosecution’ looks like it has been sent from GMP and featured the force’s logo and font.
