Australian Federal Police Scam

Australian Federal Police Issue Warning Over Scam Email

The Australian Federal Police have issued a warning about a scam email that interests recipients to pay a Traffic Infringement notice.

The emails ask people to pay a fine of $116 for negligent driving.

The AFP said the emails were a scam and asked people not to pay any money or click any attachments or links.

STATEMENT:

This scam did the rounds last year, and unfortunately it’s reared its ugly head again.

Please help us warn others.

DO NOT PAY ANY MONEY. DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS. PLEASE JUST DELETE IT.

We will NEVER send you a traffic infringement notice by email.

There’s no need to call us to tell us you got it. But if you inadvertently click on a link and suspect your computer or phone might be affected by a virus, you may need to contact a professional computer expert for help.
