My vehicle, with a New York License plate, was issued a parking citation in Florida. The citation indicates the proper plate number but indicates the state as FL (not NY) ..... Due I forget it or pay it?
No one can or should tell you to pay or not to pay. What i can tell you is this. If this is ever figured out, the fines and surcharges will cost more after late penalties than the basic ticket will. You can also show up and fight it by saying it was put on your car but the info is incorrect and see what they do.
Ignoring it will only lead to increased costs and possible suspension of your driving privileges.

Was your vehicle in Florida and did it receive a summons? Is it possible that Florida issued the same plate number as NY did? Yes I'm sure it's possible but it's also possible that they didn't and at some point may figure it out and come after you for additional penalties. Yes it may be difficult for them to track you down but if you want to ignore it its a gamble that you have to take take. I don't think there is anyone here that will tell you what to do.
