The Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles is warning everyone that there’s more scamming going on over the phone – callers claim to be working for the Oregon DMV and claim that your vehicle registration or some other aspect of your vehicle(s)’s legal status is in question. They demand payment under penalty of arrest, lawsuit, or withholding from state income taxes.
It’s all B.S. – as usual.
The DMV says they never use the phone to contact Oregon citizens about their vehicles. If your registration expires, you’ll get pulled over by police and likely get a traffic ticket for having expired plates. That’s it.
So if anyone calls and demands you set up a way to get money to the caller, JUST…HANG…UP!
