Can I pay my traffic fine online?

A mail doing the rounds - I hope the banking details are correct - or many fines might get deposited into a clever scammers account! :)

Quoted verbatim:

YES, this is another new service for those who do their banking over the Internet. It requires that you arrange for your bank to set up the City of Johannesburg as a beneficiary to payments from your bank
account.


Follow these easy steps.

1 Logon to Internet Banking

2 Select the [BILL PAYMENTS] link AND load a PRIVATE BENEFICIARY.

3 Beneficiary Name: City of Johannesburg

4 Beneficiary Reference: Type in your fine notice number, example: E2/00000/200/000000

5 Branch Code for Internet Payments - 63200500

6 Account Number: 4054398332 (NB: The bank account number to pay Traffic Fines differs from the bank account number to pay for Rates and Taxes, Electricity and Water).

BANKING DETAILS FOR THE CITY OF JOHANNESBURG - METRO POLICE DEPARTMENT
FOR FINE PAYMENTS:

Bank: Absa, Branch Code: 637956 Account number: 4054398332


IMPORTANT: Send payment confirmation to the following fax number: 011 490-1557(f) or 011 490-1647(f), Telephone enquiries can be made at:011 490-1675 or 011 490-1612.

Should you have problems loading the City of Johannesburg as a beneficiary with you bank, please contact your bank.

  1. Why don't you ask them to set up a system like others have done so people can use EasyPay?

    Other municipalities are doing this.

  2. Fair comment... I imagine this is coming. The post was more dealing with the e-commerce aspect. Still wondering if those are the correct bank details. Would make a wonderful scam if you got a viral email with a private bank account listed :)
