Here is a reminder that you need to be alert for fake emails that look like they come from your local police or State Dept of Motor Vehicles (DMV) claiming you have a traffic violation. At the moment, there is a local scam in New York that falsely states you have outstanding violations you need to either pay for or refute, and if you don’t your license will be revoked.
This scam may spread to the rest of America soon. Remember that citations are never emailed with links in them, or sent out with an email attachment. Report scams like this to your local police department.
As always, follow Email Security Best Practices to avoid being scammed by an attack like this one.
