Car Title Renewal

How the scam works:

(with video below) Did you ever wonder how to get a replacement car title or even asked yourself "How can I get a copy of my car title"? Standing in line to renew your registration or license at the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles in the US) is not on most peoples’ top ten lists of entertaining activities. With the advent of online services, one can renew an expired license or registration with a few clicks of the mouse.

However, with this new technology come scammers ready to take advantage of the ease of internet renewals. Especially when it comes to the replacement car title.

In this latest scam, victims will receive a postcard from the fake DMV advising them of the need to renew their license or registration, and directing them to the website where they may do so.

Once there, the victim enters their credit card payment to facilitate payment and will receive an error message, making it appear as though the payment did not go through. What has actually happened is the scammers now have your credit card information and the shopping spree begins.

Most victims are not aware they have been scammed until they receive a call from their credit card company, advising them of multiple charges being made.

How to avoid:

Once again, when conducting any transactions online, check the URL and make sure you are on a secure site. You can tell a secure site from the https prefix to the web address. When dealing with any DMV transaction, you will be on a government site, which has the domain name of .gov. If it ends in .com or .org, you are not on a government website.

If you receive a mailed communication about license or registration renewal that has a website not ending in .gov, contact your local DMV as well as your states Attorney General’s office.
