Scammers Pretend to be NHDOT

New Hampshire’s Attorney General Gordon MacDonald is cautioning residents about a new email scam falsely presenting itself as the state’s Department of Transportation. The scam email uses the state’s Department of Transportation logo and says it’s seeking payment for a speeding infraction with the threat of a criminal investigation. MacDonald says the New Hampshire Department of Transportation will never send an email asking for payment and that recipients of this email should not contact the emailer or provide information. He says that while the EZ Pass system does communicate through email, it won’t do so for criminal violations.
