Carrie sent an email to all of her friends about this phony traffic ticket she found in her mailbox at work.
The envelope had the return address of the "Superior Court of California, County of Sacramento"
|And a rollerskating Santa stamp postmarked from San Bernardino, CA.|
letter itself read:
To Whom it May Concern: A traffic violation is being issued against you by the state of
California, County of Sacramento. This is a letter of notification of a speeding violation incident that occurred in the month of October. The Superior Court of California Traffic division has found you responsible for operating your vehicle above the normal speed limit of 55 mph. Our Traffic division secret service patrol used an accurate speed velocity monitor and a hidden
surveillance highway camera that detected your accurate speed which was beyond the posted speed limit. In order for you to resolve this over speeding violation and to prevent this case for being on your DMV driving record, a bail amount of $315.00 is being issued against you. Please read and follow the instructions below to avoid consequences and suspension matters.
Carrie spotted this fraud immediately and called the traffic department of the courthouse to verify that this is a scam.
So, this is a warning, not for you, but for your sister Paulette, who always falls for this kind of thing. I won't even fathom a guess as to how many laws this kind of fraud breaks.
The scary thing about this, for me, is that all the ham-fisted errors in the letter and the printing could have been fixed. That could make for a much harder-to-spot version of this same scam.
The letter included a return envelope to the "Process Center", with a handwritten "Case #1775A"
If anyone reading this knows what resides at the PROCESS CENTER
address: 2097 E. WASHINGTON ST. 1E -173
