Toyota issued a warning to its buyers, informing them that the con artists have been using Toyota name to get some Toyota clients to give up the financial information. Toyota says the scams include some forged Toyota check.
“It’s come to our attention that there have been several efforts to scam people out of financial information through the use of correspondence on a falsified Toyota letterhead, and accompanied by a forged Toyota check.
“These scams usually involve an attempt to obtain personal or financial information from the recipients. This information then can be used for identity theft, or to raid the individual’s bank accounts.
“There apparently are different variations of the scam. In one instance, the letter solicits the recipient’s participation in a mystery-shopper program. In two others, the letter advises that the individual has won a lottery involving a large sum of cash and/or a Toyota vehicle.
“Remember the old warning says that if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is? That’s the case here. These letters are fraudulent. If you receive one, do not respond, and do not attempt to cash any check that might accompany your letter.“
Toyota says also that federal law officials are now investigating.
