Scammers are targeting truck drivers with a deceptive scheme. Here's the rundown: They pose as recruiters from random companies, prompting you to upload sensitive documents like your driver's license, social security number, and medical info to the Amazon Relay app, which they have an account with. They then instruct you to wait a few days. Sensing something fishy, I did some digging and contacted the supposed company directly, providing them with the scammer's details. The company's owner swiftly confirmed it was indeed a scam, clarifying that they don't use Amazon Relay and receive licenses directly from drivers for insurance purposes.

When I pressed the scammers for an update via the Amazon Relay app, they asked for more time, citing background checks. Upon informing them that the company had no knowledge of them, they vanished. While I'm unsure of their intentions with the license info, it's likely identity theft. I urge fellow truck owners and drivers to be vigilant. Google the company, verify numbers from the DOT website, and don't trust phone numbers provided by supposed recruiters. Stay safe out there.
