More fraudulent U.S. DOT letters ask for bank info

Posted on September 28, 2012

Another round of fraudulent U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) letters, dated Sept. 24, are being distributed, largely by fax, to motor carrier officials.

The letters appear to be from the U.S. DOT Procurement Office and are signed by a fictitious name — Julie Weynel,  senior procurement officer — who is not an employee of U.S. DOT.

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 in looking out for fraudulent attempts to gather financial or other personal identifiable Information (PII) data by fax, email, or telephone. Requestors should be verified and authenticated before such data is provided.
