Fraudulent Ontario road test booking site could lead to identity theft: police
Police are warning about a fraudulent road test booking website designed to get personal information from Ontario drivers.
Ottawa police say they've received several complaints from unsuspecting drivers who attempted to book a road test using the site bookyourroadtest.com.
Investigators say the website appears legitimate at first glance and shows up on top of a Google search for ''road test'' due to promotion by fraudsters.
The data collected via the site is considered very valuable, as it includes a credit card number, driver's licence number, address, date of birth and phone number, which can be used for identity theft.
Those looking to book a road test are cautioned to take the time to verify that they are booking on the Ontario government's official Drive Test Centre website.
Anyone who has been a victim of this scam is asked to notify their financial institutions and report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
