The RCMP National Division Traffic Services was recently made aware of fraudulent emails purporting to be from the RCMP.

Stuart Miles

The emails claim the recipient owes money for traffic violations.

The RCMP would like to remind the public that it does not serve or issue charges by email. The RCMP does not use email to collect fines for traffic violations or any other types of offences.Anyone who receives an email such as this one should not reply, and should report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. If you have been a victim of this scam, please contact your local police detachment.
