CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Clarksville say someone is impersonating offices and attempting to collect hundreds of dollars for fake traffic camera tickets.

Sgt. Charles Gill told The Leaf-Chronicle (https://leafne.ws/WISOeq ) the man tells victims that they have received a Redflex ticket and a judge with Montgomery County General Sessions Court has suspended their driver’s license and issued a bench warrant for their arrest.

The scammer tells the victim he’s with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and to submit a $996 money order and their license while be reinstated and the bench warrant dismissed.

The city uses Redflex cameras for surveillance at the most accident-prone intersections. The sheriff’s office doesn’t use the Redflex system.

The $50 fines are civil and jail time or a loss of license isn’t a possible penalty.
