USDOT Warns Of Fax Scam

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- Scammers are on the prowl again, this time using faxes.

Some businesses have received faxes from what looks like the U.S. Department of Transportation asking for financial information for procurements.

Businesses are then asked to fax back a form with your banking information.

Department of Transportation representatives say they will only request financial information referring to specific contracts, and will never ask financial information from prospective contractors.

If you have answered the fax, DOT suggests notifying your bank as soon as possible
