Travel Tip of the Day: Beware of the Emailed Speeding Ticket Scam

Drive to Saratoga Springs

Beware of the Emailed Speeding Ticket Scam
If you’re driving in or through Pennsylvania anytime soon (or have recently) and you get a speeding ticket emailed from a local police department, don’t click the link. It’s a new malware scam that contains accurate speeding data, including street names, speed limits and actual driving speeds, according to the Tredyffrin Police Department. The link claims to lead to a photo of the user’s license plate but instead loads malware onto the user’s device. It’s a brilliant scam, but if you get it, don’t click the link. So far it’s only been reported in Pennsylvania but be on the lookout for copycats in other places. .
