DMV Warning to New Yorkers: Fake Traffic Ticket Emails are a Hoax
Pay close attention to an e-mail you may get claiming you need to pay Traffic Ticket (one which you are unaware of) or get your car impounded, according to News Reports. It's a Fake E-mail.
Owen McShane, Director of Investigations for the NY DMV, said,
"The agency does not operate that way, “If you have a traffic ticket you will get a notice from us to plead guilty, not guilty, request a court date. We do not demand immediate payment, and we don’t threaten suspensions if immediate payment is not made.”
