New Email Scam Going Around

Posted on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 17:05 PM

Another scam to be aware of in Northwestern Ontario, this time involving speeding tickets. 

A listener reached out to the CJRL Newsroom to report an email scam claiming to be from the government of Canada. 

The email claims to be a Speed Penalty Notice. 

It lists specifications of the violation including the date, and says the vehicle was going 30 miles per hour over the posted 75 mile per hour speed limit. 

There is also a photo of two separate cars attached and says the person receiving the email has a legal responsibility to comply. 

This is not a real ticket, and if you receive the email, delete it.
