HOPEWELL: Police warn of new parking ticket scam

A new scam which targets residents by claiming they owe money for a delinquent parking violation in the “City of Pennington” has emerged in the last few days, according to the Hopewell Township Police Department.

A Haddon Court resident reported that someone left a “Notice of Delinquent Parking Violation,” which is fake, on the windshield of their car sometime between 10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. May 13, police said.

Haddon Court is in the Hopewell Grant neighborhood in Hopewell Township, and similar notices may have been left on the windshields of other cars in the development.

The fake parking violation notice advises the recipient a payment of $40.10 is due before May 25. There is a phone number at the top of the notice advising the recipient a check can be mailed to a post office box in Pennington.

Police said the notices were not issued by the Borough of Pennington and should be disregarded. The notices are fraudulent and residents should not make payment if they receive one.
