The North Dakota Department of Transportation is warning the public about a phone scam that involves callers claiming to be from the state driver’s license division.
People have reported receiving calls stating their driving privileges are in jeopardy and that fees must be paid to keep their privileges.
The callers ask for personal information and then direct that money be sent to a California address.
Some calls appear to be spoofing the phone number for the Department of Transportation.
The department doesn’t make such calls and anyone receiving such a call is urged to hang up, the agency said in a statement released Friday.
Residents of North Dakota who have questions about their driver’s license or suspicious calls can contact the department at (701) 328-2601 or email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
