CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Scammers are using the New Hampshire Department of Transportation’s logo to try to collect money for bogus speeding tickets, state officials said Friday.

The attorney general’s office said scammers using the email address “[email protected]” are sending messages telling recipients that they will face criminal investigations if they don’t send payment.

The state transportation department never sends emails seeking payment for traffic violations, nor does the EZ Pass toll system.

While EZ Pass does send emails about account balances, notifications related to violations are sent by U.S. mail.
