Delta Police are warning residents about an email scam making the rounds.

Police want Deltans to know that the department does not send emails to citizens issuing them traffic violation fines and demanding electronic direct payment.

Authorities urges anyone receiving an email saying they owe fines for driving violation(s) to promptly delete it.

In a release to media, Delta Police warn that “scammers are getting more creative and take advantage of fear tactics to victimize people. To be on the safe side – if you are ever in doubt, please contact the DPD directly.”

The DPD does send out warning letters regarding driving offences, but those are sent via Canada Post mail and are simply warnings that carry no fines or penalties.
