Warning from police about email scam: don’t download the files

POLICE within Chifley Local Area Command, which includes Oberon, have been made aware of an email scam being sent out informing the recipient they have received a traffic infringement and providing a link to download it. 

Police say infringements are posted out via mail and not emailed unless a person is stopped and that person supplies an email address and agrees to the infringement being emailed to them. 

Those who receive the infringement email are advised not to download any files.
