Council issue warning over fake penalty charge notices

A fraudster is attempting to scam Southwark residents with fake penalty charge notices, the council has warned.

Some residents have received fake letters purporting to be from Southwark Council, in which they are asked to pay £130 for a parking violation.

One letter, seen by the News, includes a close-up photo of the registration plate of the recipient’s car.

It claims that the car was spotted parked illegally in Denmark Hill and instructs the owner to stump up the fictional fine using a “dedicated payment line.”

The council highlighted the fact that the logo for parking enforcement organisation NSL was used on the letter, despite the fact that the council actually uses a different contractor.

The matter has been reported to the police.
