ADOT issues warning of fraudulent MVD websites

By Taylor Higgins. CREATED Nov 28, 2013

PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Department of Transportation has issued a warning about fraudulent Motor Vehicle Division websites.
They're alerting customers that various websites are conducting numerous fraudulent schemes by falsely advertising motor vehicle services for Arizona driver licenses, IDs, vehicle titles or registrations.
The website scams illegally obtain credit card numbers and charge credit card accounts for unauthorized, bogus services and for services that will not be conducted.
The captured credit card information may also be used for future fraudulent purchases and charges.
ADOT officials say consumers should be wary of phone solicitations.
They say the MVD doesn't conduct phone solicitations for driver license or title/registration services.
