JASPER — The Jasper Police Department is warning the public of a motor vehicle scam.

Police say the scam involves an email notice appearing to come from the “Department of Motor Vehicles” alleging that the recipient has violated a traffic law and has 72 hours to pay a ticket.

The email includes a link to submit a payment.

Jasper police say that is not the way any of the local or state police departments, county clerk offices or Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles conducts business.

Anyone receiving a suspicious email should not click on any of the links and they should not send money.

Police said questions can be directed to the Jasper Police Department at 812-482-2255 or the Dubois County Clerk’s Office at 812-481-7035.
