Two more scam emails from ‘CJIB’

3 October 2017

Don’t fall for two fake emails sent on behalf of ‘CJIB’, which is the Centraal Justitieel Incassobureau or Central Fine Collection Agency – an executive agency of the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice.

The first scam email is about an alleged “debt from 2014” relating to a “municipal after-tax and deferred tax authority”. Recipients can only avoid serious consequences if they pay an amount of € 198. If they don’t, there will be police at the recipient’s door and the prospect of forty days in provisional detention.

The subject line of the second email reads “Last Reminder” and refers to an unpaid traffic fine. The sender is demanding that € 334 be paid before 7 October. If the recipient fails to pay, they will get a bad credit-rating with the Central Credit Registration Office (BKR). Here’s an example of this message (click to enlarge):

Our advice
Please ignore both emails. They are fake. Keep in mind that CJIB never informs people of a fine or sends any other notification by email.
