DMV warns of email traffic ticket scam

Posted On: June 1st, 2017

The NYS Department of Motor Vehicles issued a notice today warning consumers against an email “phishing” campaign that sends a notice to email users stating they must pay a ticket within 48 hours or their license will be revoked. While the notice is made to appear as if it comes from DMV, it is a hoax.

The fake email provides two links to either plead guilty or to refute the tickets. The links direct unsuspecting users to a malicious download that may expose your computer to a virus. 

If you receive one of these emails, delete the email immediately. Do not click on any links in the email and do not forward the email.
