Belleville Police Warning of  New Scam

 

Belleville Police are advising city residents of another scam that is occurring over the internet.  An email is received indicating that there is a Traffic Infringement Notice with a driving offence, an infraction date and a set fine attached to it.  The email specifies that the fine must be paid by a certain date.  Provincial Offence Notices are not delivered by email. 

Once again, Belleville Police are urging people not to answer these types of emails nor provide any type of personal information such as credit card information in response to these emails and /or phone calls.
