Parking: watch out for this new scam!

A new parking scam is currently raging in France. We explain to you how not to be trapped.

Parking in the big cities, we can’t really say that it’s a real pleasure. Already, finding a place is not an easy thing, but in addition, it is generally very expensive. And let’s not even talk about PV, also called post-parking package. The price of the latter has risen sharply, from 17 euros just a few years ago to at least 35 euros. In some municipalities, you even have to pay up to 90 euros. Suffice to say that it is better to think about paying for your parking lot before leaving your vehicle. Especially since controls are now automated in some cities.

A new scam

But sometimes, it happens that we find a notice of fine on his windshield, which has the gift of getting on our nerves. But are you sure it’s real? At first glance, no doubt, all the logos look real and so does the presentation. In short, everything makes you say that it is indeed a official document. Except that’s not necessarily the case. Indeed, crooks have fun putting fake tickets on cars, to encourage drivers to pay and pocket the money. Everything looks authentic and it’s easy to be fooled. Some have paid the price…

very realistic

On the document, we can read the following message: We would like to notify you thata fine of 35 euros has been delivered against you. We draw your attention to the fact that a surcharge of 135 euros will be added if payment is not made within two working days. It is therefore more than essential to settle as quickly as possible. To proceed with the regularization, please use the QR code or the link below“. Do not do it and go to the ANTAI website if in doubt.
