Tauranga fraudulent parking ticket warning
Con-artists are taking scams to a new level, with fraudulent parking tickets in Tauranga.
Tauranga City Council says they have been made aware of a fraudulent parking ticket being placed on a vehicle in Tauranga.
“This has not been issued by council,” says a council spokesperson.
“If you receive a parking ticket and you have concerns, there are a number of ways you can confirm its legitimacy.”
These including parking infringements and bus lane infringements will all have a unique six digit infringement number on them.
This number can be used to pay the infringement through council’s website, says Tauranga Council.
“If paying a fine via internet banking, always use the infringement number and the word ‘parking’ in the description to ensure the money is allocated correctly.”
If you have any concerns, please contact us to confirm the legitimacy of an infringement notice on 075777000 or email@example.com
