    If there is a gov.uk domain that isn't a proper Government department or local council there are far bigger issues to worry about. I know National Parks and other Quangos that don't pass the criteria for getting one ands if there is a problem they can literally be taken down in 10 minutes once the correct people are notified.

    If the email address is @department.gov.uk it will be safe and that justice address looks 100% correct for the distribution of proceedings of crime from a case in West Yorkshire.

      Fair enough. I'd still be cautious before giving any bank details though, to be on the safe side.

        Just get them to send a cheque then. Or tell them you'll pop in - got to be worth the journey given the sum involved?

          Or even just contacting them separately.

          I did consider that it might have been a scam before letting it through, but a quick check showed that there is a URL with that name.

          Justice.gov.uk

          I expect people here to perform their due diligence - we tell them often enough...

            You should be fine emailing a gov.uk address, always check if you get an email from a gov.uk address

                It is the address quoted on Gov.UK for the Ministry of Justice, so should be kosher...

                    He's missed a trick not setting up as an "umbrella" company at the moment. I doubt he would make a top 50 list of dodgy ones..

                      As "Darren Upton"? If I remember correctly, I thought he had been struck off by his professional accounting body. Perhaps you can still call yourself an accountant despite being struck off the register? (As far as I know, you don't need any actual qualifications to call yourself an accountant - Chartered Accountant title or similar is however, legally protected). Might be different with accountants, but I doubt that a doctor could still call him/herself a doctor if he/she had been struck off the professional register?
