Police warn of hoax e-mail

  • Text size: + -

NEW YORK STATE -- New York State Police are warning about a hoax e-mail that's been circulating claiming to be from the state DMV.

Police say the e-mail has been making the rounds nationally, and it claims to have a traffic ticket attached as a zip file. But the alleged ticket is in fact a virus.

Police are warning recipients not to open the e-mail and also not to forward it along to state or local police.

The e-mail is currently being analyzed by the State Police Computer Forensics Lab.
