The Martin County Tax Collector is warning drivers about an email scam circulating the state.
It claims the recipient ran a red light and has 72 hours to pay a fine.
“I hope to protect our Martin County taxpayers from this online theft by warning our residents that receive this e-mail to delete it immediately and not click on any of the links. It is a scam," said Martin County Tax Collector Ruth “Ski” Pietruszewski in a statement.
The bogus email claims to come from the local Department of Motor Vehicles, Pietruszewski said.
