Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) Speeding Ticket by Email Fake or Real?

If you have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) Speeding Ticket by Email and are wondering if it is fake or real then think about these points.
 
In the UK Police do not send speeding tickets (Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP)) by email. The notice has to be sent by post within 14 days to the registered keeper, there is no option to email.
 
  • Does the email claiming to be a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) show the vehicle registration?
  • Does the email claiming to be a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) show the Registered Keeper Name?
The answer to both these questions is likely to be no as the emails are sent at random and the spammers have no idea who they have been sent to.


A Notice of Intended Prosecution has to be linked to a vehicle and a Registered Keeper so these emails can be deleted as spam.


If you have clicked the link on the email then I'd recommend using a virus scanner on your PC as you are likely to have infected your machine with a virus or Trojan.
