R. Scott Waddell, Commissioner of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), issued a warning to Hoosiers motorists of inappropriate phone solicitations regarding insurance rates:
"My office was informed that our customers are receiving calls from an outside organization claiming to be the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles and offering to reduce their auto insurance rates. At no time will the BMV ever contact our customers about insurance rates. Please be advised that if you receive this kind of call that it is not from the Indiana BMV."
The offending calls were coming from the following phone number: 765-733-1023.
