Be aware of speeding ticket scams

From time to time, we are made aware of various scams nationally in which members of the public receive bogus Notices of Intended Prosecution by email.

One of the latest scams comes from fraudsters who are targeting motorists with realistic emails claiming to have photographic evidence of speeding.

Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police will only issue official Notices of Intended Prosecution by post, not by email. Anyone who receives an email of this nature is urged to immediately delete it, as it will install a virus on your device which can hack your details.

An example image of a current scam being used in the Manchester area is shown on this page. The 'Notice of Intended Prosecution' looks like it has been sent by Greater Manchester Police and features the force's logo and font.
