Rayners Lane Police have tweeted a warning to local residents after a scam email has been sent to people asking to pay fines.

The email has been sent to people within the Rayners Lane area and offers people the opportunity to pay their ‘penalty charge’ online.

MPS Rayners Lane tweeted: “If you receive this email from HM Courts, do not click on pay as its a scam. Thanks to residents of Rayners Lane for being so vigilant. 👀 #StayAlert”

The email states that you have received a £25 penalty charge for ‘the use of a vehicle on the road in a charging area’.

The email goes on to say: “If you do not respond before the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the date of service of this notice charge certificate may be issued which would increase the penalty charge to £100.‬

‪”Failure to then pay the increased penalty charge may result in the outstanding balance being registered as a debt in the County Court.‬”

Sadly some people have already paid the false penalty charges.
