LPD Warns About Parking Citation Scam

The Lakeport Police Department is advising the public about a parking citation fine scam after one resident received a fake parking ticket. The resident got the citation via email. The email said the sender was from the “City Police Department” but did not provide an actual police email address. The email contained a link to download the ticket and to make a payment. LPD said they do not send out emails related to parking ticket billing. If you receive a similar email, avoid clicking any links and delete the message.
