“The City of Crossville DOES NOT email traffic citations. Your email address is not linked to your vehicle registration, therefore there is no way for any police department to email violations to vehicle owners based on your registration alone,” CPD wrote in a Facebook post.

The police department says these emails are scams and are not from any “legitimate government organization.” CPD asks that people don’t send money to the scammer.
