Fake fine alert

A real fine and a fake fine

Another email scam is doing the rounds and motorists are being warned to be on the lookout for fake traffic infringement notices dropping into their inboxes.

The latest iteration of the scam purports to be from Fortnum Dubbo Financial Services and urges people to click on a link to download their infringement notice.

Scams of this nature intend to fool people into paying the fine, disclosing their personal banking information, or download a virus that could infect your computer and providing scammers with access to personal files. Victoria Police never send fines by email - they are only issued on-the-spot or by post.

To check whether you have received a fine, you can contact Fines Victoria on (03) 9200 8111 (metropolitan) or 1300 369 819 (regional) 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).
