Dalton, TN Police warn of scammers posing as DMV

Dalton police say an email scammer posing as the Department of Motor Vehicles is targeting residents with a message claiming they owe money for a speeding citation. Police say the message is bogus.

DPD spokesman Bruce Frazier says several Dalton residents reported the fake email to Dalton Police Friday morning.

The message, which was sent by the email address “violations@citygovernment.co.gov,” says the recipient has been cited for a traffic violation and must pay the fine within 72 hours.
