Fake driver’s license renewal scams have hit the state of New Hampshire and many others alike. The internet has not only allowed individuals to quickly renew their driver’s licenses, but also a place for scammers to take advantage of private information meant for the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
Although the internet makes some of our everyday tasks easier to do from home, BBB warns individuals to be careful when entering sensitive information into the computer. Scammers have been using look-a-like websites similar to the DMV tolure people into thinking they are renewing their licenses, when in fact they are giving out their personal and credit card information.
To ensure you are on the DMV website, type in the web address directly instead of doing a search on the computer. Individuals should receive a letter from the DMV a month or so before their driver’s license expires which will contain the correct web address needed to renew online.
