British Transport Police scam warning

22nd September 2010

Police are warning internet users not to reply to a fake email purporting to be from the British Transport Police.

The email asks for money relating to importing vehicles into the UK. This is a scam. The British Transport Police has no involvement with vehicle importation and would never demand money in this way.

Anyone who has lost money to a scam like this is being asked to report it to Action Fraud.
