West Virginia City Warns of Fake Parking Tickets

Parking, ticket, parking ticket

Drivers in one West Virginia city are being told to watch out for fraudulent parking tickets.

Morgantown Parking Authority director Dana McKenzie says in a news release the agency received several calls about the tickets Thursday.

McKenzie says agency parking enforcement staff and Morgantown police have been contacted.

The tickets say violators will be fined $100. But small print at the bottom of the handwritten ticket states it was issued by a concerned citizen and is not an actual fine.

The parking agency says anyone who receives these tickets should ignore them and contact the agency.
