04/01/2017: speeding? me?

Another shabby scam email attempt has come to light. This one involves sending out fake fixed penalty notices taking the name of the Greater Manchester Police in vain.

It turned out to be a Florida Holiday rental domain, so not really likely to tell me anything about my driving habits.
