Don’t Fall For This Florida Traffic Ticket Scam

December 29, 2016

The Ticket Clinic has built a reputation by protecting motorists. This time we’re alerting our clients about a Traffic Ticket scam hitting mailboxes in South Florida during the holiday season. Recently the Florida DMW issued a a news release that a company is sending emails, pretending to the DHSMV and seeking payment for a fake traffic ticket.

Motorists should note the following, the state said:

• The state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and county Clerks of Court do not send citations via email or require payment of citations via email.

• Traffic ticket numbers always are composed of seven alpha-numeric digits, while the fake citation numbers are six digits.

As always, call 1-800-CITATION with any questions you have about traffic tickets and citations.
