Deschutes County Justice Court staff is warning residents about a scam involving fake emails that ask residents to pay fines associated with traffic citations.
Court staff have received several calls from community members who have received an email from someone who identifies themselves as Deschutes County Traffic Enforcement and asks recipients to pay a fine for a traffic violation.
These emails are a scam and recipients should not provide any payment or personal information. If you receive this message, please do not respond to it.
The Deschutes County Justice Court does not email traffic citations.
If you think you have been a victim of a scam, please contact non-emergency dispatch at 541-693-6911.
