MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is warning about a scam targeting sportsmen and sportswomen.

The TWRA says a new fake website appears when you google “Tennesseefishing license.” Officials say the site has you enter your personalinformation, such as name, birthday, social security number, driver’s licensenumber, phone number, email address, and residential address. After gatheringthe info, the website never asks for payment for the license.

The TWRA says the website appears to have been created outside theU.S., and officials are working to get it shut down.

Anyone who may have used the website is advised to monitor orfreeze your credit.

The TWRA says the only legit website to purchase a Tennessee hunting or fishing license online is https://gooutdoorstennessee.com/.
