City warns against infringement scam

Monday, 11 June 2018

The City of Bunbury is warning residents about a recent email scam doing the rounds of the South West region.

Email recipients are issued a fake infringement notice for either a parking fine or red camera violation. They are then requested to make payment by following a link.

The sender claims to be the ‘City Council’.

The City of Bunbury would like to confirm that no infringements are issued via email and advises if residents receive such an email to delete it and not click on the link as it may contain a virus.

ScamWatch has been notified of the scam and encourages scam recipients to report scams to the ACCC via the report a scam page.

This helps warn people about current scams, monitor trends and disrupt scams where possible.

Please include details of the scam contact you received, for example, email or screenshot.
