From the Evanston Police Department
The Evanston Police Department is warning the public about a traffic camera ticket scam. Several citizens have reported receiving emails notifying them they have been issued a “Moving Violation Recorded by Traffic Camera.” The email specifically states the violation was recorded by a traffic camera in Evanston, Ill.
The city of Evanston does not have any traffic cameras. If a citizen receives an email claiming a traffic camera violation within the city of Evanston, the email is fraudulent. Do not respond or attempt to pay the citation, it is a scam with the likely goal of committing identity theft.
Below is a screenshot from one of the fraudulent emails.
