NH Officials Warn of Scam Emails Demanding Fine Payments
If you receive an email appearing to be from the New Hampshire Department of Motor Vehicles demanding you pay a fine, its a scam.
Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald and DMV Director Elizabeth Bieleki said the fake email cites the recipient with a traffic violation and then demands payment within 72 hours.
The DMV does not notify traffic violators or request payment through email.
Here's what to look for in the fake emails:
- A scam email address similar to “violations at citygovernment.co.gov.”
- Links for “easy pay” or to contest the fine amount.
Here's what to do if you receive one:
- Do not click any links or attachments.
- Never provide your sensitive personal or financial information.
- You can verify fines by calling the Department of Motor Vehicles at 603-227-4000.
Anyone with questions or complaints can contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Information Line at 1-888-468-4454 or fill out a consumer complaint form at the DOJ’s website.
