YOU HAVE YOUR SAY
EVERY week Money Mail receives hundreds of your letters and emails about our stories. Here are some about the car park scammers targeting motorists:
Money Mail, September 8
PART of the problem is that car park operators have been replacing machines that take cash with those which will only accept cards. Soon there will be no machines taking cash.
P. Y., Bury St Edmunds.
NOT everyone is bad. I remember parking one evening in the pouring rain. I could barely read the instructions on the meter, let alone follow them. But a kind stranger helped me work out what I had to do.
W. S., Southampton.
I ALWAYS pay with my mobile through Google Pay nowadays. I’ve not used cash or a card for over a year. It means I don’t have to worry about my card getting swallowed or having to phone my bank if I lose it.
M. A., email.
ALWAYS trust your instincts with these kind of people. If someone looks suspicious, they probably are. Ask for an ID card to make sure they are genuine. If they decline then you’ll know not to trust them.
B. W., Cardiff.
