Stopping Identity Theft at the DMV

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is trying to stop identity theft by getting hundreds of people involved in stopping crime.

In 2006, the DMV opened up a hotline for workers and customers to report cases of possible fraud at the agency.

The hotline got 1,477 tips in 2007, which is a nine percent increase over 2006.

Five people were arrested as a result of the tips last year.

Residents can report possible identity theft at the DMV by calling 800-ZERO-FRAUD.
