    Police in Tredyffrin, Pennsylvania are warning drivers about a new scam that uses accurate GPS information. The messages being sent to drivers claim to be speeding tickets; and in order to lend legitimacy to the scam, they contain accurate personal information as well as location data.

    The emails contain an attachment, but it isn't clear if the attachment itself is malicious. To be on the safe side, drivers are warned to avoid opening the attachment, because if it is malicious it could infect the system.

    The email contains the victim's first and last name, and it's addressed to an email address they're familiar with. In addition to accurate personal details, the email also contain valid GPS information (including roads traveled and speed.)
