BOISE (AP) — The Idaho Transportation Department warns that there's a telephone scam involving automobile license registration.

ITD vehicle services manager Amy Smith says the agency has received calls from customers who say someone called them with offers to renew vehicle registrations by telephone.

She says DMV offices do not solicit vehicle registration renewals by telephone. Vehicle registrations can be renewed in person, by mail or online in participating counties but not by phone.

Smith urges anyone receiving such a call, which could be an attempt to steal important personal information, to contact local police.
