Staff Sgt Stephanie Burns from our Organized Fraud section posted a tweet earlier in the week regarding a new phishing scam

An email is sent to you advising that you have been issued with a traffic infringement as a result of photographic evidence.  The email identifies the infraction as negligent driving and directs you to take action immediately.  

Phishing emails look legitimate but stop and think.  How would they get my email from my driver's license??  The answer...........They CAN'T!!

Don't fall for this; just delete the email .

Feel free to share this with friends, family and neighbors. The more people who know about this the less that will get caught in the scam.
