The Washington State Business Licensing Service (BLS) has notified the City that some local license customers are getting phishing attacks emailed to them.
Scam emails may tell the business that endorsements should be renewed or certified via a link in the email. These emails are not from the Department of Revenue or any of it’s partners. Renewal notices from BLS will be sent from cms.dor.wa.gov. Valid emails will only alert a business about a new message in their My DOR inbox.
If you get a suspicious email about business licensing:
- Don’t click any links, reply, or provide any information.
- Verify expiration date on the business license document or check at dor.wa.gov/businesslookup.
- View or renew a license only at https://secure.dor.wa.gov/ and log in to the secure account.
- Questions? Concerns? Call us at 360-705-6741.
