Scam alert: Fake recruiter asking driver trainees for money

| April 21, 2014

The Commercial Vehicle Training Association relayed the following bulletin April 21: A scammer posing as a recruiter from Knight Transportation is getting names and numbers from driving schools and then is contacting drivers to offer them a trainer if they wire him $200. 

The scammer has been using the name Larry Davis. 


This is now the hottest cargo theft scam

Experts say bogus pickups will become the dominant type of cargo theft.

CVTA says this is a scam, and there is no Larry Davis that recruits for Knight and the carrier does not charge recruits, CVTA says.

Several people have fallen victim to the scammer, CVTA says, and a police report has been filed in Florida.  

CVTA says it received the information from the American Trucking Associations.
