Fraudulent DOT letters looking to obtain bank data

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, fraudulent letters claiming to be from the Senior Procurement Officer at the US DOT have been circulating as part of an identity theft scam.  The bogus "Authorization to Release Financial Information" letters ask the recipient to provide their bank information.  The letters are on US DOT letterhead, and are signed by fictitious official Julie Weynel. 

More information, including who to contact if you receive one of these letters, can be found here.
