Nabbing illegals at the DMV
It may take forever to see a customer service rep at the DMV, but when you do don't try to bribe an agent to get an illegal license. Thanks to the DMV's Zero Fraud hotline, you could get arrested on the spot. As the DMV reported recently, three individuals who tried to obtain Virginia licenses without proof of legal residence, and by attempting to bribe the customer service rep, were arrested in a sting operation after the rep called the hotline. These incidents demonstrate challenges that all our front-line employees encounter routinely, says DMV Commissioner D.B. Smit. "These incidents show how we are working together to eliminate fraud at the DMV." Great, now if only they could eliminate those two-hour waits!
