Scams and Alerts

Every day, scammers send out spam emails, text messages, notices, letters or correspondence, and make phone calls to random, unknown recipients for the purposes of being deceitful to innocent people. The subject of these scams can sometimes be fines related.

These types of scams try to trick people into paying a fake fine, tell them that they no longer owe fines and sometimes try to get people to disclose their personal information such as credit card or bank account details which can compromise personal information.

If you are the recipient of an email, text message, notice, letters, correspondence or a phone call relating to fines which you suspect might be from an untrustworthy source or a hoax, contact the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit immediately.  Please note, the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit DO NOT issue Expiation VOID Notices so should you receive any suspect correspondence (notices or letters) please contact the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit on 1800 659 538 immediately to discuss your circumstances.
