Fake Speeding Tickets Finding Some Computers

Another scam to be aware of in northwestern Ontario.

This one involves fake speeding tickets.

A listener reached out to our newsroom to report receiving an email claiming to be from the government on Canada and idenfityings 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 attached showing two separate cars and states 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.
