The city of Pea Ridge is warning residents of an email fraud scheme involving traffic citations and fines associated towards those violations.
Pea Ridge Police say that someone has received the email saying they committed traffic violations and were being issued fines. This is not from the police department and is a clear attempt to fraud someone of their money.
The police department wants to urge the public that this is not the protocol on how traffic citations are issued and fines are only set by the court clerk or a judge.
Pea Ridge urges the public not to pay these so-called fines and to contact the police department at 479-451-8220.
