The Police Department has received reports from law enforcement agencies in Pennsylvania and California regarding a scam involving fraudulent speed camera violation emails.
At this time, MCP has not received any reports that County residents have received these emails.
The email, which states that the person has received an automated speed camera citation, includes a link that if clicked, loads malware/viruses on the user’s computer.
The Montgomery County Police Department does NOT send automated speed camera citations via email – only via US mail.
If at any time a resident receives any form of communication from the Police Department and would like to verify its validity, please call the Department’s Public Information Office at 240-773-5030.
