Beware: Fraudulent Letters to Motor Carriers Requesting Banking Information

Posted: December 5, 2012 in Just In, Wallwork Truck Center

Wallwork Truck Center, would like to announce yet another †round† of †fraudulent USDOT Letters† dated September 24, 2012 are being distributed, largely by fax, to motor carrier officials. Please be careful! The letters appear to be from the †U.S. Department of Transportation Procurement Office† and are signed by a fictitious name †Julie Weynel – Senior Procurement Officer† who is NOT an employee of USDOT.

The letters are an attempt to obtain banking information from the targeted carriers.

Motor Carrier officials and their employees – as well as government and law enforcement officials, should be vigilant and on the lookout for fraudulent attempts to gather financial (or other personal identifiable Information – PII) data by fax, e-mail, or telephone. Requestors should be verified and authenticated before such data is provided!
