Getting a ticket is always bad news. But when you get a ticket that’s not even real, you could be in serious trouble — and not with the law. New ticket scams target drivers throughout the United States, capturing personal information, stealing money and identities, and installing viruses and malware.

Ticket scams prey on fear. Most drivers are scared to leave tickets unpaid, especially when the scam insists you may be sent to collections, lose your car, or even be arrested. But often, the scammers reach out in ways legitimate law enforcement and parking agencies wouldn’t, usually via email or even over the phone.

While you should always pay for legitimate tickets, these ticket scams simply aren’t real. Don’t be a victim: watch out for these scams and learn how you can avoid them.

Fred Taylor, President Worcester Chapter NAACP, spoke with us after the release of the Tyre Nichols video. Five Memphis police officers have been charged with Nichols murder. Taylor said a civilian review board with subpoena power is needed and he favors getting rid of qualified immunity. He said enough about the excuses over body cameras. We need those body and dash board cameras yesterday. Taylor said he will continue to speak with City Councilors and hopes to have an honest conversation with the City Manager and Chief of Police.

Worcester City Manager Eric Batista talks about the development around Polar Park and explains how the city is paying for the project. The City Manager is adamant that the city is able to pay for Polar Park. Worcester created a District Improvement Finance area around the ballpark. Money generated in that DIF District are applied to the park and that revenue offsets the debt within the ballpark. It does not pull away from taxes in other areas of the city.
