Police in the Flathead valley are warning of an email scam targeting your pocketbook.

Whitefish police say this latest scam involves people giving out their bank account or credit card numbers for a phony parking ticket.

Police said it's made to look like it's from your local police department.

In a Facebook post, Whitefish police said they will never email you in reference to a ticket or warrant.

If you clicked a link in an email like this scam, or a similar one, and provided banking information, you're asked to call your local police department immediately.
