From Idaho Press-Tribune, “Consumers report FishingLicense.Org in Coeur d’Alene and Drivers Services in Meridian appear to be selling fishing and driver’s licenses, but are in fact selling downloadable informational guides. BBB is partnering with the Idaho Transportation Department to warn consumers about these deceptive licensing websites.
“While we urge consumers to always do their due diligence before making a purchase, it is equally important for a business to be clear and transparent in what it is selling,” said Tyler Andrew, BBB Serving the Northwest CEO.
Consumers claim when they complete an online search for “fishing license” or “driver’s license” the search engine leads them to a page on FishingLicense.Org and Drivers Services. The pages tell the user they can purchase, renew or replace their license. But after a purchase is made, the consumer discovers they ordered an informational guide.”
