The phishing emails are sent from the ‘Department of Motor Vehicles’ with the email address of [email protected].

These emails will often mention that the recipient has violated a traffic rule and is expected to pay the composition amount within 72 hours of receiving the notice through the EasyPay platform.

The SPF will like to inform the public that the email domain used to send the phishing email is not from the Traffic Police and the Traffic Police will also not request for payment via the EasyPay platform.

They also warned the public not to click any links on the emails or make any payments from the links provided.
