Fake Parking Tickets Scam Hits Nashville’s Midtown Hills Area

MNPD warns of fraudulent parking tickets being placed on vehicles in Midtown Hills.

The MNPD Fraud Unit is advising the community to be aware of fake parking tickets appearing in the Midtown Hills area of Nashville. The fraudulent tickets are designed to look like official Metro Nashville Parking citations and claim that the vehicle has been illegally parked, requiring payment of a fine.

Legitimate MNPD and NDOT parking tickets have a consistent appearance, as shown in the attached example. Fines for these tickets should only be paid online through the Circuit Court Clerk Traffic Violations Bureau.

The public is warned not to pay any parking fines through the fraudulent website, www.metronashvilleparking.com, or to a Square account.

Anyone who may have fallen victim to this scam or sees one of these fake tickets on their vehicle should call 615-862-8600 and report it to a Fraud Unit detective.
