CITYWIDE — IF YOU RECEIVE a text message claiming to be from “CityPay,” delete it, the NYC Department of Finance warns. “DOF does not send unsolicited text messages reminding you to make a payment,” DOF said on their website, adding, “Do not click any links sent to you in a text claiming to be from CityPay, as this is a scam.” At a press conference with Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday, Deputy Mayor Levy repeated the warning about not clicking on the text message. “This is going all over. I’ve seen it,” Levy told reporters. “People from upstate send me messages, even reporters saying they got this. This is one I personally got in the middle of the night last week.”

NYC’s official websites always include “.gov” and never “.com,” Levy added. The actual CityPay website is nyc.gov/citypay.
