MN DOT Warns Truckers Of Fraudulent FMCSA Letter
ST. PAUL, MN (TruckingNewsNow.com) (Source: MNDOT) — MnDOT is getting calls from registered motor carriers who received a letter requesting them to update their USDOT information online. One such letter is from DOTService.com, which is not affiliated in any way with MnDOT or the USDOT. The letter indicates the motor carrier will be fined or their USDOT number will be deactivated if they don’t comply.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has a web page with information about fraudulent letters and tips for motor carriers to follow: https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/registration/fraudulent-and-misleading-marketing-new-fmcsa-applicants.
