We have been made aware of a scam involving fake parking fines in the car park reserved for Progress Living’s residents at our Lincoln site.

We offer free parking for all Progress Living residents on a first-come, first-served basis. We do not issue parking tickets or fines to residents, and there are no time limits in place.

If you are suspicious of a parking fine, you should wait to send payment until you can verify the ticket.

How to spot a fake parking ticket

  • Spotting fake parking tickets: Check for suspicious emails, tickets left on your windscreen, or received by post. Look for spelling mistakes, incorrect logos, and verify the sender’s address.
  • What to do if you receive a fake ticket: Report fake PCN emails to Action Fraud, and never click on any links within the email. Verify the ticket’s authenticity by contacting the official issuer.
  • Avoiding fake tickets: Confirm the issuing authority and your car’s registration number on the ticket. Don’t feel pressured to make a quick payment.
  • Challenging genuine tickets: If you believe a parking ticket is unfair or fake, use the gov.uk website to challenge it by typing in the postcode where you received the ticket.
