With a helping hand from us at Alexander, Winton, & Associates, if you’re a broker or carrier, you can take action against fraud that continues to threaten our industry. Our interactive tool helps you, and others in the transportation industry, by providing relevant contact information – something that is of great value to any broker or carrier.
While our tool is excellent at keeping brokers and carriers informed and educated there are a few guidelines you should know of, to help you get the most out of our identity theft tool. Keep reading for more information or get in touch with us at
Verifying the Email
Perhaps the most important piece of contact information, you’ll want to verify the email address that a company has provided to the FMCSA. Specifically, you’ll want to pay attention the whether the email contains a unique domain (firstname.lastname@example.org) or not (email@example.com). It is imperative that you verify the email as authentic, as, if you don’t, you can easily expose and endanger your sensitive information.
Verifying the Phone Number
Just as important as verifying the email address is verifying the phone number. If you are communicating with a number that does not reflect what’s provided to the FMCSA, you’ll want to confirm that the email address matches, at the bare minimum.
Unsure? Call the Number AWA Provides
Not seeing verifications in either the email address or phone number? An easy way to be certain is to call the number provided in our Identity Theft Tool and conduct a background check from there.
