Potential Email Scam04/24/2017
The Eugene Municipal Court has been made aware of a potential email scam involving alleged parking tickets issued by the “Police Department”. Notification of a parking ticket within the City of Eugene is initiated by the placement of the actual citation on the vehicle at the time of the infraction followed by a letter to the registered owner of the vehicle if the citation is not paid in 30 days. If you are concerned, all outstanding parking citations can be looked up by license plate number via this link or by calling (541) 682-5400.
