A malware scam that poses as a speeding ticket email is targeting drivers in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County.

The fake violations include accurate speed, time and location data that police suspect is gained from a compromised mobility or traffic phone app. The scam directs people to pay fines by clicking on a link or downloading an attachment form. Instead, malware is loaded onto the device.

The scam uses emails being sent by the address citation@safe-browsing.com.
