Scam alert: Fake recruiter asking driver trainees for money

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. 

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.
