Be Aware! Keep your car safe!

When was the last time you actually looked at your license plate? Probably not recently, but hopefully after reading this you will get in the habit of checking it often!

There is a new scam that is being perpetrated on unsuspecting vehicle owners that everyone should be aware of so they can protect themselves and their vehicles.

When a person habitually receives tickets and does not pay or contest them, their vehicle’s license plate will eventually be placed on the “booting list”. This means that their vehicle is in danger of being booted and possibly towed and impounded. Of course, these people do not want to see that happen, so they do a “tag switch”.

What they do is take their license plate and put it on your car, while they take your plate and put it on their own vehicle. Not nice ☹

Now, when our booting trucks come around and see the license plate that is on their list, your car is going to be the one that is booted. This leaves you with a mess to get straightened out and nobody needs that!

Please get in the habit of checking your plate to make sure it is your own. If you become a victim of this scam, notify the police immediately.
