    I dont believe opening the email is the problem, just dont click on any of the links in the email.

  • just a bad experience

    I got a bill in the mail, within the last 2 weeks but I had never been there, nor crossed the bridge, it seems someone stole plates off of a vehicle I junked, & had sent to a scrap yard, the tags were out of date around 3 years, but these people were trying to claim I still owe, since I never turned in the expired plate, they tried to claim I could still have possession of the plate, I think I got them set straight, & time will tell, if I need to cuss them anymore, I scrapped quite a few old junkers I had & I dont know who I sold what to, so no idea what actually happened, but I junked the vehicles last year.
