Don’t Get Scammed!
This last week I went skiing in Tahoe, CA. As usual I always put my drivers license, credit card and ski ticket in my inside pocket of my vest in case I crash or get injured.
When I got to the first lift to go through the gate, I had to shuffle things around so my credit card wouldn’t mess with ski ticket scan.
I skied the whole day, had a great time.
When I got back to the cabin I transferred my vest contents into my purse. But, my drivers license was missing!
However-this is a huge tip—I took a photo of my drivers license before I left on my ski trip. So I still had proof of who I was in digital form.
Hint – (Take photos of your passport also for this reason)
Being the diligent person I am I went straight to the DMV site to find out how to get a new license. I filled out my information on the site and purchased my replacement.
Or so I thought.
Even though the had an official looking DMV seal and a very professional look and feel to it—-IT WASN”T THE REAL SITE!
Turns out it is a 30-Day Road Side Assistance site.
BOGUS, MISLEADING and just plain WRONG!
Here is the site so you know–mydriverslicense.org
(Just put the http:// in front to actually go to the site)
TIP: Make sure that if you need to do the same or similar type of thing that you make certain the site is official by checking the link. A real link should have your State’s abbreviated name and gov.org as the end.
Be careful and check out everything before you go to a government site!
