The Truckload Carriers Association is warning motor carriers about faxes on bogus, reproduced Department of Transportation letterhead requesting carrier financial information in order to qualify as a DOT contractor for procurements issued by DOT.

TCA warns carriers that the letter is falsified and has been sent by those requesting the financial information of the company for their own use. This issue currently is being investigated by DOT and the Inspector General’s Office. Frozen Foods Express, a TCA member, alerted the association about the fax.

TCA warns all motor carriers to refrain from completing this falsified document. To see a copy of the bogus fax, click here. For more information, contact David Heller at 703-838-8847 or dheller@truckload.org.
