DOT warns about fraudulent letters seeking bank information
James Jaillet | July 30, 2014
Carriers should be on the lookout for fraudulent letters appearing to be from “Equifax Credit Information Services — Government division,” said the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration this week in letters issued to its field offices.
The letters will be dated July 11, 2014, and signed by Thad Brown, FMCSA says, and they seek to obtain banking information for the companies targeted.
It states that the “records show” the letter recipients are “registered as a prospective contractor for procurements issued by” the federal government, and that financial information is needed to proceed.
