Scam Alert: Email Using NH DOT Logo
A new scam involving an email that pretends to be from the Department of Transportation has been reported by Attorney General John M. Formella and Transportation Commissioner Victoria Sheehan.
The scam email uses the DOT logo and is often from the address "NHDOT DBE email@example.com" with the message "You have received a secure document from The New Hampshire Department of Transportation." A document is attached to the email; the email claims the document is secure.
If you receive a similar email, do NOT reply to the sender, provide any personal information, or download or open the document. You can contact the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-888-468-4454 to report the email.
The DOT will never send an email asking someone to "save and open" a document. To verify the validity of an NH DOT communication, please call NH DOT's Chief Communications Officer Eileen Meaney at 603-271-6495 and for an EZ Pass or communication, please call 1-877-643-9727.
