Receiving parking tickets/fines for a vehicle you've sold, never owned or which you do own but you know it wasn't your vehicle?
 
 
Cloning involves the copying of the identity of a similar (non-stolen) vehicle already on the road. Criminals find an exact match of the car they have stolen and copy the identity of the legitimate vehicle. This makes the vehicle they have stolen look legal based on false number plates being fitted. Unfortunately, it is up to you as the registered keeper to satisfy the issuer of the ticket that it was not you or your vehicle at the time and place where the alleged offence occurred.
 
Report the matter to your local police via the non-emergency 101 number or via https://www.surrey.police.uk/
 
Additional suggestions:
You could consider taking a photograph of the rear of your vehicle that may show that it was not your car. There will be differences between your car and the cloned one.

Legally manufactured number plates must have the details of the manufacturer on them so that may also be a way of distinguishing the vehicles, providing the photograph is of a high enough quality.

Can you prove your vehicle wasn't in the location at the time of the offence e.g. if you park your car in a car park whilst at work the operator may have CCTV evidence to prove that your car was there at the time of the alleged offence.
