The Kentucky State Police Post 2 in Madisonville is alerting the public about an email scam that includes a KSP photo and seal.

Someone within the Post 2 coverage area called the post Friday and said he received an email containing a picture of a Kentucky State Police vehicle and a KSP seal. The email stated the recipient had gotten a parking ticket, and if it were not paid by that Saturday, he would be in contempt of court. The email contained a citation number and said the parking citation was for "failure to pay toll." There was a link in the email to pay the parking fine, and was signed "Best regards, Kentucky State Traffic Enforcement."

The Kentucky State Police reminds people to never give out a Social Security number or other personal information online or by phone. To report a possible scam, call 1-888-432-9257 or fill out a complaint form online at
