DHSMV Warns of Traffic Citation Scam
Consumers targeted for payment of fraudulent citations
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) is warning consumers that they may be targeted
by a company representing itself as the DHSMV demanding payment for fraudulent citations. The company, which is not associated with
the DHSMV in any way, will send emails to consumers requesting payment of a citation within a certain timeframe and if the payment
is not received on time, the company will falsely require a daily late fee payment.
The email sent to consumers includes a linked payment page and email address. While the linked payment page appears to be
inactive at this time, the DHSMV is warning consumers that this is a scam and no payment should be made. If a consumer has made a payment,
they should refute the charge and take the appropriate security measures with their financial institution.
Consumers should note the following:
- The DHSMV and Clerks of Court do not email citations to customers;
- The DHSMV and Clerks of Court do not require citation payment via email;
- Citation numbers are always seven alpha-numeric digits;
- If a consumer receives a notice regarding a suspicious citation, they should contact the local Clerk of Court or call the DHSMV immediately.
PDF Forms Displaying Wrong Name
We are finding that some people that access forms from the website are still getting forms with Diane M. Matousek,
while other people that access the same form are getting Laura E. Roth. This is occurring even after clearing all browser cache.

Clerk of Court Imposter Scam
If you receive a call from someone claiming to represent the Clerk's office threatening you with a warrant or arrest
as part of an attempt to get payment from you, this is an imposter and is NOT the Clerk's office.
The most recent scam is sophisticated and may even appear to be the Clerk's office on your caller ID. However the official Clerk's
office will never call you discussing a warrant or threatening you for payment over the phone. If you receive such a call,
please call your local law-enforcement agency. Do not give money to the imposter.
New Online Viewing Options Available
We are pleased to announce that pursuant to Supreme Court Administrative Order AOSC 15-18,
the Clerk is now authorized to make many public court document images available for online viewing. This Order specifies the security level
permissions of various users depending on the case and document type. Cases and documents made confidential by statute or court order are excluded.
Using Case Inquiry on the Public Records page you will now see many public document images displayed
automatically on the docket tab within the case. Some documents must be requested and reviewed by a Clerk before they can be released for online viewing.
Of course, some case types and documents are nonpublic and may not be viewed.
Also, you may apply to receive login information for increased
viewing permissions. These applications require a notarized signature and other information pursuant to the Supreme Court Order. To register for
additional online viewing, see the options on the Request Online Viewing page.
