According to the MMTA’s latest newsletter, fraudulent DOT Letters are back… FMCSA has issued a new warning to carriers that may have received a fraudulent letter that is part of a recurring identity theft scheme. The letters are dated March 16, 2012, and appear to be from the “U.S. Dept. of Transportation Procurement Office,” and signed by a fictitious name of “Julie Weynel – Senior Procurement Officer.” The falsified letter is an attempt to obtain bank information by asking recipients to provide financial information on an “Authorization to Release Financial Information” form. If you have recently received this letter, please contact the Office of Inspector General Hotline at http://dot.cantongroup.com/hotline, or by calling (800) 424–9071. Fleets are also encouraged to contact their local law enforcement agency.
