Carriers being targeted by fake letters wanting banking info, FMCSA warns

Carriers should be on the lookout for fraudulent letters appearing to be from “Equifax Credit Information Services — Government division,” said the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration this week in letters issued to its field offices.

The letters will be dated July 11, 2014, and signed by Thad Brown, FMCSA says, and they seek to obtain banking information for the companies targeted.

It states that the “records show” the letter recipients are “registered as a prospective contractor for procurements issued by” the federal government, and that financial information is needed to proceed.

Anyone who receives the letter is encouraged by FMCSA to contact tom.frazier@dot.gov or bob.thomasson@dot.gov, who are in the agency’s investigative support unit.
