  1. […] Hi I just wanted to real quick let you all know about this new email/voice mail scam. I will update this post later today just wanted to FYI everyone now. If you get a voice mail or email with attainments say they are the police and you need to pay your parking ticket or speeding ticket really any kind of ticket right now to avoid a warrant for you arrest. And ask you to download the ticket attainment and fill out the form and mail it in to the court house po box to avoid jail time. That’s how it works and they make it look real to. Police have also issued a statement thy they will never email or call to get money for a ticket. I will update later today. Link is: http://www.scamtrends.com/uniform-traffic-ticket/ […]
