ever fun to see that paper flapping under the wiper blade as you return to your parked car. Cybercriminals in San Francisco are putting phony parking tickets on cars with a malicious QR code which leads to a fake website to collect your “parking fine”.
Don’t pay the ticket based on any information printed on the ticket itself.
Don’t pay the ticket based on a QR code posted on the parking meter or nearby pay station. Criminals are known to place malicious QR codes there as well.
Go to the official website of the municipality/transit authority with the appropriate jurisdiction and pay your fine there.
Be aware, most entities subcontract ticket processing to a third-party,
so don’t be surprised when you get sent to a different entity to process your payment.
