More payment reminders from ‘CJIB’

18 May 2017

You may have received an email reminding you that you need to pay a traffic fine. The amount due is € 230,15. If you have, watch out! This is a scam email.

The scammers are telling you that you have skipped a red light, and that they have repeatedly sent you late-payment reminders. Despite this, you still haven’t paid your fine.  You are now asked to transfer the money to an ING bank account. Don’t! The money will end up in the pockets of scammers.

Here’s an example of the email (click to enlarge):

Our advice
Ignore this email. It purports to come from the CJIB, the Centraal Justitieel Incassobureau or Central Fine Collection Agency – an executive agency of the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice. The CJIB never sends fines by email.

If you want to know whether you have been fined, please check the CJIB website with your DigiD number.
