The Australian Federal Police has taken to Facebook to warn users of a recent traffic infringement notice scam.
According to the AFP, scammers claiming to be police are asking people to pay traffic infringement notices via email (see image below). This is a scam.
Do not pay any money and do not click any attachments or links. Delete the email immediately and consider running a virus scan of your computer in case the email is infected with a virus.

It would appear that the scam alert we issued earlier in the week regarding email traffic infringement notices from the Australian Federal Police has morphed into a new scam.
The original scam outline is still in place about an unpaid fine, but the scammers have now changed it to ‘driving intrusion information’ issued by the ‘Commonwealth of Australia’.
Don’t be scammed!!! Don’t click on any links which are in the email. You should delete the email straight away and consider running a virus scan of your computer in case the email is infected with a virus.
