Scammers will try anything to get folks to share their personal information, such as Social Security numbers, bank accounts, telephone numbers, e-mail and residential addresses and even driver’s license numbers.

The latest scam purports to sell Georgia fishing licenses, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division. The scam site appears to be most active in north Georgia and along the seacoast.

It appears as an advertisement during a Google search for “Georgia Fishing License.” The scammer asks for all that personal information, but never asks for payment for the license. Never ever share personal information with anyone.
